Forum Series on Children & Families

Since 1999, the Forum on Children and Families by the Child and Family Policy Center, has brought significant, state-of-the-field research to the attention of community program directors, senior administrators in state and city agencies, government policy analysts, researchers, foundation heads, advocates and media representatives– experts whose work profoundly affects the underserved children of New York City.  This event is held annually, and each year generates task forces that addresses issues identified as critical by those involved with the forum.
