LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the Jewish Child Care Association upon
the occasion of hosting its Celebration of Hope event

WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that the
quality and character of life in the communities across New  York  State
are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts of those organiza-
tions  and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare of the
community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Jewish Child Care Association upon the occasion of hosting its Cele-
bration of Hope event on Wednesday, May 22, 2013,  at  Capitale  in  New
York City; and
  WHEREAS,  Serving children and families of all faiths and backgrounds,
the Jewish Child Care Association (JCCA) is a  comprehensive  child  and
family services agency that works with many, including children who have
been  neglected or abused, immigrant Jewish families, and those building
new lives; and
  WHEREAS, JCCA, a not-for-profit, comprehensive, multicultural  agency,
has  been  serving children and families since 1822; its programs in New
York City, Westchester County and Long Island include: group and  family
day  care,  mental health and preventive services, education programs, a
residential diagnostic center, foster homes, group homes and residential
services for children and adolescents, preventive services,  independent
living  skills  training,  adoption programs, and services to the Jewish
community; and
  WHEREAS, JCCA helps more than 16,000 children and families every  year
and  is  consistently rated at the highest levels for the quality of its
programs; its mission is to meet the child  welfare  and  mental  health
needs  of  all  children and their families in the New York metropolitan
area; and
  WHEREAS, JCCA's highly trained, dedicated staff works  collaboratively
with  families  to  build  on  their strengths, preserve the family when
possible, and help create new families when necessary so that all  chil-
dren may thrive by having a sense of family, culture and community; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown  a
long  and  sustained  commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commend  the  Jewish Child Care Association upon the occasion of hosting
its Celebration of Hope event; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Jewish Child Care Association.
