Who has the best junior boards in New York City?

And other updates from across New York.
June 17, 2019

Catholic Guardian Services is going to operate a federally funded facility for unaccompanied migrant children in New York City. The Norwood News reports that this has taken local officials by surprise in the University Heights neighborhood of the Bronx. This would be the latest facility in the area to open its doors to children who crossed the U.S. southern border.

In most cases, unaccompanied children are from Central American countries like El Salvador and Honduras and intend to claim political asylum once they arrive in the country. The policies of the Trump administration, however, have made it more difficult for nonprofits that contract with the federal government.

 

 

Who has the best junior boards in New York City? The Guest of a Guest blog attempts to answer that question through a bit of clickbait.

There is a new president and CEO at the National Council for Behavioral Health. Chuck Ingoglia has taken on the position, effective June 1, following the retirement of Linda Rosenberg, according to a press release. The release added that her tenure included the expansion of the organization “from a small nonprofit representing community behavioral health to the large organization representing 3,000 behavioral health and addiction providers.”

 

Project Hospitality has received a $3.87 million contract from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The money will fund medically monitored treatment for drug addiction, according to the City Record. The agency has also given a $1.51 million contract for supportive housing to Lantern Community Services. CAMBA won a $1.41 million contract from the agency to provide supportive housing for people living with HIV/AIDS.

The contract blitz continues with Ohel Children’s Home and Family Services, which received a $2.19 million contract to improve the mental health of children under 5 years old. Single Parent Resource Center is providing alcohol addiction services, per a $1.19 million contract. The Children’s Aid Society meanwhile, is getting a $3.3 million contract from the Administration for Children’s Services for preventive services.
