A coalition led by Court Watch Montgomery had a very productive meeting Monday, Oct. 19th with County Executive Ike Leggett to advocate for safe, affordable, community-based child exchange and supervised visitation services! Both Mr. Leggett and the head of the Health and Human Services Department voiced great interest in trying to find a way, despite extremely tight budgets, to add something to the County Executive’s budget this year to begin with several pilot exchange centers, including one in East/Down County. This may be an exciting way to begin our learning curve for providing these services and get a line item into the budget that grow in future years as budget woes ease.  We’ll keep you posted!
