Children born of addiction (03.15.10 6:13 pm)

Funding is in jeopardy for a clinic that has provided prenatal care to 200 pregnant women struggling with addictions and has delivered 82 babies with good results.

A grant that supports the social worker at the Perinatal Addiction Treatment of Hawaii Clinic runs out in May, said Renee Schuetter, executive director.

In addition, a three-year $223,000 grant awarded to the clinic last month from the Hawaii Community Foundation for a smoking cessation program would end in July under proposed legislation to divert money from the foundation-administered Tobacco Prevention and Control Trust fund to the state treasury.

The Senate Health and Human Services committees have scheduled a hearing on the measure, House Bill 2887, at 3 p.m. tomorrow in Room 016 at the state Capitol.
