We are excited to announce that Jennifer Fuchs, Interim Director of SCO’s Children and Family Treatment and Support Services (CFTSS) and High Fidelity Wraparound programs, received the Family/Caregiver award at “What’s Great in Our State,” an annual celebration hosted by the state that recognizes New Yorkers and organizations that are successfully advancing the cause of children’s mental health throughout New York State.

Through her work within the CFTSS and High Fidelity Wraparound programs, Jennifer creates a safe haven for individuals and families, fostering a space where openness and vulnerability are celebrated and every voice is heard and valued. She is a tireless advocate for youth and families and a champion of inclusivity and empowerment. She networks with peers and other agencies to expand resources and support networks for the children and families in her care.
