Summer camp and after school enrichment providers like the Big Buddy program say they've seen a drop in funding, donations and volunteering. At the same, they've had more young people than ever looking to come through their doors.
Now, for the first time, they'll have to start charging for some of their services.
Parents worry it could have a devastating effect on the help they've come to depend upon.
