DELOITTE DAY OF SERVICE

For Impact Day, Deloitte Consulting’s annual day to recognize its year-round commitment to corporate citizenship, the firm facilitated a professional development workshop at Children of Promise, NYC. Participants included former Children of Promise, NYC program participants and members of Restoration, a local community-based organization that empowers Central Brooklyn residents to prosper and grow.

YPC | 5K RUN + BRUNCH

Thank you to the Young Professionals Council, Youth Empowerment Program from Rowan University, and all of the friends who came out to the 5K fundraiser in Prospect Park and joined us for a fun, post-run brunch! Your personal investment in bettering the lives of young people with incarcerated loved ones means everything to us!

Friends traveled as far as South Jersey to take part in the fundraiser and over $7,710 was raised to benefit CPNYC's mission of empowering children impacted by parental incarceration! A special shout out to Stephanie Cozzi from CPNYC’s Women’s Philanthropy Group for being our World Changer Top Fundraiser!

After the run, a celebratory brunch was held at the CPNYC facility and was open to all 5K participants and CPNYC's incredible community of supporters.

MLK Day of Service | Pop-Up Shop

On one of the coldest days NYC has seen in almost 3 years, Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC) was warmed by an incredible outpouring of generosity from volunteers who donated items and their time to our MLK Day of Service Pop-Up Shop.

This annual event gave out donated items, such as laundry detergent, diapers, and sanitary products, that are not available through public assistance programs to families of CPNYC and the Bedford-Stuyvesant community. These financially strapped families often find it difficult to purchase these basic items and will often do without or purchase on limited or few occasions. CPNYC coordinated with 7 different local shelters to arrange transportation for the families, the CPNYC team organized workshops for the children as their parents ‘shopped’, and over 150 volunteers from the Jack & Jill Metropolitan Cluster showed up to provide support.

Our sincerest thanks to Jack & Jill Inc. and the Jack & Jill Metropolitan Cluster for co-organizing and a special thank you to our photographer Ilitch Peters and BSE Global, Delivering Good and United Legwear & Apparel Co., Scott Colosimo, the Delta Alpha Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc, and the Kappa Beta Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc for volunteering your time to set-up the event and for donating additional linens, toiletries, clothes, jackets, hats, gloves, detergents, and more.

The collective efforts of these groups and individuals made the day a great success and touched the lives of many.

2018 WOMEN IN HUMAN SERVICES | Hall of Fame

We’re thrilled to announce that Sharon Content, Founder and President of CPNYC, was recently inducted into the Strong Nonprofits for a Better New York Women in Human Services Hall of Fame. In 2009, Ms. Content founded CPNYC after growing increasingly concerned about the lack of support offered to young people who experience parental incarceration. The agency has since provided services to over 1,500 children and their families. Today and everyday, we thank you for your inspirational leadership!
