Every quarter, the New York City Administration for Children Services (ACS) recognizes agencies for Excellence in Practice and Excellence in Performance. This quarter, SCO’s Foster Care Program received two Excellence in Performance awards. SCO was recognized for high achievement in securing Kinship Guardianship Assistance Program (KinGap) with a relative who has been a foster parent for at least six months for our children and adolescents in care. Our Foster Care Program was also recognized for attaining a high completion rate for the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths assessment (CANS).
