Semifinalist for Nonprofit Excellence Awards

New York - The Children’s Aid Society learned that it is a semifinalist for the 2017 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards. 

“It’s an incredible honor to be chosen by the New York Community Trust as a semifinalist for its Excellence Awards,” said Phoebe C. Boyer, president and CEO of The Children’s Aid Society. “Our commitment to ensuring that all children and youth have the opportunity to realize their fullest potential demands that we continually set the bar higher for ourselves. This recognition is certainly a validation of those efforts, but more importantly, it serves as motivation to work harder and smarter as we help young people and their families learn, grow, and lead.”
