We are proud to announce the release of our newly redesigned CUCS website! The website has been updated with a new look and streamlined navigation that makes information easily accessible while delivering an improved user-interface.
On October 19th, CUCS held an evening of gratitude and celebration that brought together 150 leaders in business, government, nonprofit and philanthropy. CUCS’ 2016 Champion Awards: Changing Lives Together cocktail reception was a celebration of the thousands of lives that have changed through our programs and services as well as a time to recognize some of our most dedicated supporters.
Health and wellness are a priority to CUCS. They are part of our core programs and goals in rebuilding the lives of thousands of New Yorkers, and also why we love promoting healthy living at every opportunity. The Prince George supportive housing community recently held the Health and Sustainability Fair and what a success it was!
Every year, CUCS hosts a number of interns who are earning their field placement credits while studying for their Social Work Masters Degrees. We sat down with Linda Ricciardi, the Director of Staff Development, to learn about this year’s group and why it is so important for social work students to gain field experience.
Exciting things are happening this year! The CUCS Institute and the Network will offer members the opportunity to accumulate the 25 credits needed to complete the Case Management Certificate Program by attending a six-module comprehensive training series designed to offer direct service staff a nuts-to-bolts overview of case management services. Upon completion of all six trainings, licensed social workers who attend will qualify for 25 Continuing Education credits and certification of completion of the entire series.
