Member Spotlight

This month NYCVOAD is featuring Catholic Charities Community Services, Archdiocese of New York (CCCS), which has been a longstanding NYCVOAD member. CCCS’ agency representative to NYCVOAD has served as co-chair of the NYCVOAD Disaster Case Management Working Group for the past 9 years, is serving her third year as Vice Chair of the NYCVOAD Executive Committee, and was instrumental in launching this website.

CCCS seeks to provide high quality human services to New Yorkers of all religions who are in need. CCCS provides a comprehensive range of professional human services to protect and nurture children and youth, to feed the hungry and shelter the homeless, to strengthen families and resolve crises, to support the physically and emotionally challenged, and to welcome and integrate immigrants and refugees. CCCS also has a long history of providing response and recovery services to those affected by disaster. CCCS played a key role in the response and recovery efforts of the 9/11 catastrophe, operated a disaster helpline after Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy, and has twice served as Managing Agent of NY State’s Disaster Case Management Program (DCMP), both providing Disaster Case Management services directly and subcontracting to other service providers and overseeing their work.
