About Us

With 84 programs serving 60,000 New Yorkers each year, SCO Family of Services is many things to many people.

We are advocates. We are hope. We are early childhood, independent youth, and special needs programming. We are strong families and communities. We are the promise of opportunity.

And most importantly, we are builders. We build well-being.

How do we accomplish this? By helping individuals reach their full potential. Our tools are our programs; our architects, our dedicated staff. And with the help of our generous friends and supporters, we provide the blueprint that helps those who depend on us build a stronger tomorrow.
