2022 was an exciting time for our organization as we celebrated 30 years of innovation and impact. Throughout our history, we've been helping to build healthy and resilient communities through our service offerings and programs. We've highlighted a few examples below from 2022 including the more recently developed Erie County Public Health Fellowship Program where CCSI staff worked across dozens of projects and initiatives to support public health and improve social determinants of health and quality of life. Our staff also provided much needed support to youth and their families in Onondaga County through our school-based initiatives partnership, and in Monroe County through the Family Support Center. We impacted communities across New York State with the newly expanded NYS Trauma-Informed Network and Resource Center and our work with the Crisis Response System.

Erie County Public Health Fellowship Program

We are pleased to support Erie County with implementing the New York State Public Health Corps Fellowship Program to help promote the operations and capacity of public health programs, engage a new public health work force, and increase our readiness for future public health emergencies. Through this program, Erie County is able to build capacity for their local health department as well as community-based organizations. CCSI provides program management and specialized staffing so our staff serve as Fellows across dozens of projects and initiatives as part of this program.

Onondaga County School-Based Initiatives

Through our partnership with Onondaga County, programs like ACCESS, Promise Zone, and Family Support for Student Success (FSSS) have provided much needed support to youth and families. With school-based programs, CCSI staff remove barriers that impact student success in schools, provide linkage to mental health supports, and offer tailored interventions to meet the complex needs of families and students.

Monroe County Family Support Center

We have been partnering with the Monroe County departments of Mental Health, Human Services and Probation for nearly 15 years to provide an integrated approach to meeting the needs of young people and families in Monroe County. This innovative partnership provides families with a coordinated point of entry to assess their needs and create linkages to services and supports based on their individual needs and strengths. In 2022, we continued to evolve this model into what is now the Monroe County Family Support Center.

Partnering with New York State Office of Mental Health:

Strengthening the fabric of NYS communities through trauma-informed care and mobile crisis response

As a longtime partner, we have worked with NYS OMH across various initiatives to positively impact the health of New Yorkers. Check out this video highlighting two of these projects: 1) the New York State Trauma-Informed Network and Resource Center where we are advancing trauma-informed care throughout the state, and 2) our work supporting the expansion and enhancements to the crisis response system.
