CSH’s Keeping Families Together initiative is a model for an unprecedented investment by the national child welfare system. The Administration for Children Youth and Families (ACYF) and four private foundations announced that they will be giving five communities the opportunity to create supportive housing designed to give kids a chance to live healthier more productive lives. Read our press release or visit ACYF for more information.
Keeping Families Together is our three-year pilot program designed to address the needs of New York City’s most vulnerable families. The pilot yielded impressive results. CSH President and CEO Deborah De Santis recently blogged in the HuffingtonPost about why Keeping Families Together Matters.
