On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the East Harlem Scholars Academy (EHSA) held a service day to teach students how to be dedicated leaders in the community. This year, one of their chosen service activities included assembling welcome kits for people entering CUCS’s transitional housing programs. We’re thankful for their partnership and excited to see it grow!
CUCS’ Training Institute has been training professionals in the human service, behavioral health and justice-informed field for years. Their trainings encompass a wide range of topics, including working with the chronically homelessness and best practices in supportive housing, behavioral health, case management and clinical and evidence based practices. One of the most requested trainings is Critical Time Intervention (CTI) which can be accompanied by Wellness Self Management (WSM) trainings. Both are critical to the work done by professionals in social services.
This past July marked CUCS’ 24th birthday! To celebrate, we created a peer-to-peer fundraising hub that makes it easy and fun to support our cause. We launched our birthday campaign and in the past four months have made incredible progress towards our goal of raising $50,000 by year end to build brighter futures. To celebrate our milestone of being over 65% of the way to our goal, we wanted to highlight our incredible campaigners for making this success possible!
