Board Of Directors

A Word From
Our Board

"When Nick Scoppetta became Commissioner of the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) in 1996, he had a dream. He had grown up in foster care and knew how critical a good education and the caring adults who encouraged him were to his survival. He knew government could not do it all - so he envisioned engaging New Yorkers to fill in the gaps, and New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) was born. It has been my great honor to become a New Yorker For Children working alongside my fellow board members and the dedicated NYFC staff to realize Nick’s dream."
