OnTrackNY Family Council-Update

Youth Coordinator 0 43
We are glad to share that the OnTrackNY Family Advisory Council is gaining momentum. The Family Advisory Council offers an opportunity for family members of OnTrackNY participants to give feedback on program services and materials, and share ideas on how to better involve families in OnTrackNY programs. The Council recently identified a need for help with navigating the wealth of online resources on recovery. In response, Council members are developing an online-resource guide tailored to family members. We look forward to continued involvement from family members who are offering thoughtful feedback and ideas for the future.

The Family Advisory Council is open to family members of current and former OnTrackNY participants. If you are a family member who interested in joining, or would like more information about the Family Advisory Council, please contact Sarah Piscitelli at: Sarah.Piscitelli@nyspi.columbia.edu or by phone at 646-774-8432.
