RESOURCES FOR LIAISONS AND CASEWORKERS
NYTD'S UNSUNG HEROES
Liaisons, caseworkers, and other staff members are crucial to the success of this project. Whether the youth is in or out of care, you are usually our best connections to them.
As a caseworker, we need you to make sure we have the most updated contact information for a youth, but we also depend on you to work with the youth directly to finish the survey. This can mean having youth fill out a paper survey during a home visit, or setting up a phone appointment with us for a time the youth will be with you. This is especially important with more stubborn or hard to find youth.
You may hear from administrators Mandi Breen or Ruth Lindenfelser (most likely by email), or directly from interviewers Helen Burns and Wendy Falzone (by phone or email). If you have questions about NYTD or the team members you're interacting with, please contact Mandi Breen directly. Her contact info is on the contact us page.
