We are honored to share the news that the New York State’s Office of Mental Health recently awarded The Child Center of NY with the 2020 OMH Community Cares Award for the New York City region.
OMH’s Community Care Awards were created in 2019 to highlight OMH’s partners and stakeholders in local communities across the state that are helping to identify and eliminate gaps in services and are working to build strong community-based behavioral healthcare systems. The award recognizes the extraordinary achievements of organizations who have furthered the OMH mission and made a positive contribution to the mental health system in their communities.
OMH Commissioner Dr. Ann Sullivan said the following about our work: “The Child Center of NY is a powerful presence in New York City, reaching more than 35,000 children each year. Their work gives these children and their families the skills and emotional support necessary to build healthy, successful lives. We truly appreciate their work, vision, values, and the role they play in helping us to fulfill our mission.”
Our work and this award are made possible, even in the face of a pandemic, by our skilled and dedicated staff, who show compassion and make a difference for those who truly need help the most.
We are profoundly grateful for this recognition and remain more committed than ever to helping children and families facing some of the toughest mental health challenges imaginable to lead the healthy, fulfilling lives they deserve, and which, with the right support, we know they can achieve.
