For Communities | East New York
Community Partnerships serve as ambassadors to the community, advocates for families, and advisors to ACS and the City. Our work centers achieve five goals:
Create a foundation rich in resources and connections to support the work of the partnership.
Coordinate Service Referral and utilization
Engage in outreach to identify families in need and help them connect the dots through referrals to community-based supports and resources available through the Community Partnership.
Build community capacity and social capital
Recruit and train emerging grassroots leaders as Community Ambassadors who help design and implement peer-to-peer support programs in local schools and other community organizations or institutions, strengthening ties among family, friends, neighbors and local organizations.
Support community knowledge and sharing
Serve as a hub for City agencies and local organizations to disseminate information and resources.
Collaboration with city agencies
Coordinate community voices and perspectives to inform City agency policy and program; share data and information about community needs, assets and trends, and serve as a thought partner to ACS.
