Westchester Children’s Association to Host Second Annual "Commissioners’ Conversation on Children"


Westchester Children’s Association (WCA), the only independent child advocacy organization in Westchester, will host the second "Commissioners’ Conversation" on Thursday, June 13th and has invited county officials to participate. The event, open to the public, will be held at the Greenburgh Public Library (300 Tarrytown Rd, Elmsford, NY) from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM.

The goal of the second annual "Commissioners’ Conversation" is to bring together county officials to discuss the preliminary release of numbers and information from WCA's “2024 Community Snapshots”, this will be the tenth year that WCA has published a biannual report, that shows a statistical portrait of children and families by school district in Westchester County. The event will provide a platform for county officials from Social Servies, Community Mental Health, Health, Probation, and Workforce Development to share their vision and updates of how their departments will work towards a better future for Westchester's children, youth, and young adults.

“Last year’s event was a tremendous success. The audience appreciated hearing directly from Commissioners’ their visons for kids.” said Allison Lake, Executive Director of WCA. We are looking forward to engaging with department heads on how we can use the data to help us all work together to improve outcomes for Westchester’s children, youth, and young adults.”

The event is free, but registration is required at bit.ly/CommConvo2024 more information and embargoed pre-release data will be shared prior to the event.
