Human Services Organizations Need the City’s Help

The human services sector in New York is dependent on a wide range of private, nonprofit organizations that provide services under contracts with the City. With costs rising and reimbursements failing to keep pace, many of these organizations are now starving financially. If they haven’t already, many agencies may be forced to decide between paying the rent or the utility bill. Unfortunately, it’s the city’s most vulnerable children and families who will end up paying the price.
