“When they feel pain, we feel pain because we’re all interconnected,” Anderson said. 

Haven House doesn’t receive federal grants, so its funding shouldn’t wane due to the sequester. But Anderson said these budgetary cuts will flow through communities to the point where almost everyone will feel their sting. 

Bob Lane, executive director of the New Albany Housing Authority, told the News and Tribune earlier this month the organization’s budget is being sliced by 18 percent this year. 

The New Albany Housing Authority could be forced to close 40 Section 8 housing units in the coming years if the funding isn’t restored, he said. 

“You can’t operate with unfunded mandates,” Lane said.
