Follow-up: Non-Profit Saved

GUYMON, OKLAHOMA - Almost three thousand developmentally disabled Oklahomans will avoid loosing their homes after a major state-agency is spared from budget cuts.

Panhandle Area Sheltered Workshop in Guymon helps find developmentally disabled people find homes and jobs, but back in May the program faced being cut completely. But media coverage including a NewsChannel 10 story that made national headlines prompted enough public outcry to help the program stay alive.

But PASW isn't in the clear just yet. The money is only guaranteed for a year, after that anything could happen. So the non-profit is starting a recycling program to raise money. Without one currently in Guymon, they hope to bring in several thousand dollars a month - enough to almost match the state's contributions.
