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!
