Going Home: A ThriveNYC Story

In November 2015, First Lady Chirlane McCray rolled out ThriveNYC, an action plan to change the way we think about mental health and the way we deliver services, to address the challenges with the current mental health system and to bring more services, better services, and services that are easier to access to the highest need areas around the City. DHS and ThriveNYC have launched an initiative to place Licensed Masters’-level Social Workers (LMSWs) in shelters serving Families with Children as a part of ThriveNYC. CORE partnered with the Department of Homeless Services to profile the work of CORE’s Client Care Coordinator at the MacDonough Family Residence shelter. “

It has been my pleasure to be a part of this in representation of CORE Services Group.” – Melissa Koppenhafer, LMSW, Client Care Coordinator
