At Person Centered Care Services, we believe in community. A community is at its best when people can work, play, and develop meaningful relationships with one another. The Disability Ally Initiative training is making this possible by promoting diversity, acceptance, and allyship for people with disabilities in businesses, agencies, schools and other places of public accommodation. NYC Emergency Management helps New Yorkers before, during, and after emergencies through preparedness, education, and response. Staten Island Community Organizations Active in Disaster (SI COAD), a coalition managed by the Staten Island Not for Profit Association (SINFPA), facilitates learning, networking and communication among coalition participants, and serves as a resource in emergency preparedness and disaster response for our local community-based organizations, medical/health care institutions and social services organizations and partners.
