University Center, L105 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY

Join us for a conversation with policymakers, economists, and human services experts focused on the economic and social impact of human services CBOs, and the need to preserve and strengthen their critical role in building foundational supports that contribute to the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities. The event is being organized in partnership with the Human Services Council of NY and will offer an overview of a new report by Oliver Wyman and SeaChange Capital Partners and commissioned by Alliance for Strong Families and Communities and American Public Human Services Association, A National Imperative: Joining Forces to Strengthen Human Services in America, and focus on what New York can do to address the underlying causes of financial vulnerability in this sector and actions to ensure its sustainability.
