September 2020 marked the official launch of The Collaborative for Youth & Family services. The Collaborative was formed from the merging of 2 existing work groups, both dedicated to the wellness of youth & families, through advocacy within the systems of Broome County.
The Coordinated Children's Services Initiative and The Children and Youth Services Council have joined seamlessly and the group is growing every month. The Collaborative is excited about the progress that has made been over the last year and the team is eager to share all of the momentous changes that have occurred, and how human service agencies are making plans for beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are a youth serving professional who is looking for a group for like-minded collaborators, please consider joining our full membership! Please see the "Collaborators" page for more information about whose "around the table". To be added to The Collaborative listserv, submit your info here.
