NYS Senate, Assembly visit

During October, two visits from central staff working for the NYS Senate and Assembly occurred at LaSalle. Organized and coordinated by COFCCA, the purpose was for reps to obtain an overview of the work child welfare agencies do and the populations served. NYS staff also visited St. Catherine’s Center for Children and Families and St. Anne Institute to learn about agencies caring for both boys and girls as well as all age groups. Both visits were staffed by Hinman Straub Advisors LLC.
