Are we protecting the vulnerable?

I was reading the online version of our local newspaper.

I saw an article about cuts our local Family & Children’s Services or Children’s Aid Society is making to meet a shortfall in funding from our provincial government.  In the past several years, they have had to cut several positions to attempt to balance their budget.

Is making cuts to balance budgets by putting the most vulnerable at risk really the way to be a responsible society.  What will the long term costs associated with these savings that haven’t been considered?
