Raising the Bar for Health and Mental Health Services for Children in Foster Care

Children and youth in New York’s foster care system have significant health and mental health needs that are rooted in childhood trauma. This project’s findings show that despite an increase in access to health services after entry into foster care and huge expenditures on high-cost services, the children continue to lack access to the preventive and behavioral health services that are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and New York State as a means of addressing their needs, improving outcomes, and managing costs.

So we picked a place in each borough where people live , work and/or play: a deli in Manhattan, a bar in Staten Island, a restaurant in the Bronx, a residential block in Queens and a public housing development in Brooklyn.

Wheelchairs in the Subway: One Woman's Journey

There are 468 subway stations in New York City, but only 78 are wheelchair accessible. If they want to take the subway, New Yorkers with disabilities have to wheel long distances to the nearest accessible station, a circuitous route that can potentially double the length of their commute. Milagros Franco, an advocate at the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled, gives us an inside look at tackling the New York subway system in her wheelchair.
