Greetings,
On Friday, March 28, 2014, The Office of Early Care and Education and Preventive Partnerships will host an
important Learning Community Seminar. The focus of the seminar will be Domestic Violence and its Impact
on our Youngest Children and Their Families. The seminar will be held at 150 William Street, in the
Manhattan Room on the 19th Floor. We are asking that you select two staff from your management team
to represent your agency.
This extraordinary learning opportunity promises to be extremely worthwhile for those of us who are
committed to positively impacting, strengthening and changing the lives of our at-risk young children and
their parents. Your team will have the opportunity to participate with their colleagues from across the city

population. Our featured presenters for this seminar are:

Staff from Safe Horizon, the nation’s leading not for profit victim assistance organization, will help us to better
understand Domestic Violence in New York City.

Dear Community Partners:
Edwin Gould Services for Children & Families would like to take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful new year and
to thank you for your partnership and support. As a reminder, Edwin Gould Services for Children & Families (EGSCF)
is a human service agency. EGSCF has an array of services, designed to address the complexities that often lead to
family disintegration. EGSCF provides permanency and adoption services for at-risk families (foster care); preventive
services designed to intervene with troubled families; health and mental health services to ensure that every child
or adolescent achieves maximum health potential and is emotionally prepared to meet life’s challenges. We also
provide services to reduce or eliminate domestic violence, as well as vocational and employment programs to
empower families economically.
Edwin Gould Services for Children and Families is asking you to join us promoting our recruitment event. The
campaign’s goal is to increase the number of foster and adoptive parents in our community. We are embarking on
this aggressive campaign to recruit foster homes for children ages 0 to 21. And we need your help. We are
asking you to distribute the attached recruitment flyers.
.
Edwin Gould Services for Children and Families and the Department of Parent Talent Matching Development and
Support would like to thank you in advance for your participation in this important journey. Every child deserves a
loving permanent home. We are confident that your participation in this effort will greatly contribute to the
accomplishment of this worthwhile goal.

More than 12,000 children in New York City are in foster care
and every year this number continues to increase.
These children need someone who truly believes in them.
Be the reason why a foster child’s world is a better place to
live in!
Is it possible for you to transform a child’s life?
 Foster parents are not responsible for a
foster child/teen’s medical expenses.
 Foster parents can adopt when children
cannot be returned to their families.
 Foster parents can be single, married,
partnered, straight, gay, lesbian,
