Disabled student program faces financial problems

An organization that serves disabled students in The Bronx could be closed by June if they are unable to raise the money needed to consolidate

BATHGATE - An organization that serves disabled students in The Bronx could be closed by June if they are unable to raise the money needed to consolidate their two locations.

Ninety-four students attend the Bronx Organization for Learning Disabilities (B.O.L.D.), which has locations in Bathgate and Pelham Bay. Executive director Angela Ghiozzi says they're consolidating both schools to one location in Pelham Bay, but the move is estimated to be expensive.

Ghiozzi says the school will have to shut down in June if they can't raise the estimated $175,000 needed for the move.
