To help support the expanded organizational leadership capacity required as they formally merge with Safe Space in 2015. Together, these two NYC leaders in children’s and family services will form a unified organization providing preventive services, health services, and youth rehabilitation programs under one roof for over 20,000 New Yorkers in high need communities across the City. The grant will support portions of two new senior positions — a Chief Program Officer who will have direct supervision of their four program areas, and a Chief Operating Officer who will oversee HR, IT and Quality Assurance. They will join other senior staff in assisting the CEO in rolling out the new vision and expanded programmatic initiatives resulting from the merger. Ultimately, they expect the merger will lead to greater outcomes for their clients and improved financial and programmatic sustainability for the two organizations.
