Conference Workshops and Presentations
The NYSPCC provides direct services to New York City’s vulnerable children and families and to child welfare professionals to help them manage the stressors of working in the child protective field. In so doing, The NYSPCC evaluates program outcomes as well as obstacles, and documents these results which then serve as a learning source for other service providers.
