In a panel discussion alongside representatives from Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, University Settlement Northside Center for Child Development and Lutheran Family Health Centers, Maggie Petrosky highlighted the proven results delivered by SCO’s NFP and PCH programs, and the positive impacts these outcomes have on the communities we serve.
