Citizens' Committee for Children of New York, Inc.
CCC is an independent voice for New York City's children. CCC champions children who cannot vote, lobby, or act on their own behalf, especially those who are poor, have special needs or are particularly vulnerable. Our goal is to secure the rights, protections and services children deserve. Many of our activities directly affect the lives of individual children but most of our efforts are spent identifying the causes and effects of disadvantage and poverty, promoting the development of services in the community and working to make public and private institutions more responsive to children. CCC educates New Yorkers about children's issues, publishes reports and papers, collects and disseminates data, provides technical assistance and support to policymakers, service providers, parent and civic groups and monitors the implementation of federal, state and local policies. CCC directs its attention to budgets, legislation, regulations and management of children's programs.
