Many new, exciting programs and developments are in the works here at CUCS. We recently sat down with Hadaryah Morgan, our Deputy General Counsel who has played a tremendous role laying the foundation for these new projects. She gave us some insight into her past legal work with housing and homeless services and what she likes most about working at CUCS.
Education is at the forefront of our work at CUCS. From educating the social workers of tomorrow, to prioritizing staff development, we ensure professionals are given tools to succeed. This year we are excited to have 12 full time interns joining us from their Master’s programs and 23 of our own staff members going back to school and pursuing higher education.
To celebrate breaking ground on our West 127th Street supportive housing residence, we sat down with Joseph Frewer, CUCS’s Director of Property Development. Joseph has played an integral role in this exciting project and provided us with an inside look at its progress, his career in housing development, and what the future holds for property development at CUCS.
It has been a year since CUCS took the lead in a campaign to reduce street homelessness across Manhattan. In July of 2017, we became the lead agency of the Manhattan Outreach Consortium (MOC), overseeing all outreach and housing placement services for men and women living on the streets of Manhattan. To mark this milestone, we sat down with MOC Deputy Director Lauren Taylor for some insight into her career, the program’s evolution and what working in this field means to her.
