CV's management capabilities were recognized in 2013 when we won the Gold Prize in the 2013 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards. Our strength in financial and personnel management has allowed us to survive and thrive in a volatile funding environment that has caused more than a dozen child welfare agencies to close their doors. CV was commended for its financial management practices by the Council on Accreditation and our formal method of monitoring revenue and expenses – and a rapid response to dealing with shortfalls – positioned us for growth in the wake of the realignment of the child welfare system. Some specific capabilities related to goals include:
-Strong background in evidence-based models, including experience testing new adaptations.
-Experience in family finding with evidence showing significant outcomes
-Strong programs for fathers, including father/baby outings, support groups, father/son camping, etc.
-Joined nonprofit work groups dealing with Medicaid reform

A key piece of CV's strategic plan has been to diversify its programming and funding streams to increase the efficacy of treatment interventions provided. In the 1990's, CV received 90% of its referrals and revenue from NYC's Administration for Children's Services (ACS) for residential services. Today, revenue from ACS is only 50% of our total. It was clear to us that residential treatment as implemented was not yielding the results that we expected. Long lengths of stay with little focus on family/community, poor transition into community living and a lack of aftercare in community was proving our residential model to be an expensive and alienating option with marginal success for the child and family. We needed to do something different, but we were operating in a NYC child welfare system that had long depended on residential care as the dumping ground for children who failed in community settings and a system where funding incentivized keeping children in beds. In this climate, the strategic vision of a CV that used residential care as an emergency room with targeted interventions while concurrently investing in required community services was a daunting challenge.
