Staten Island Not-For-Profit Association Holds Duel Workshops
July 25, 2017 – The Staten Island Not-For-Profit Association held two workshops on opposite sides of the borough focusing on continuity planning and building cultural awareness.
The morning workshop held on the south shore in the JCC of Staten Island Avis Building, provided by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) focused on helping local community groups great continuity plans so they can continue to function after a major emergency. Participants included Person Centered Care Services (PCCS), the Salvation Army, and the office of Staten Island Borough President James Oddo. In addition to learning the key areas they should include in their plans, such as communications, delegating authority, and increasing staff preparedness, everyone participated in a table top exercise that simulated a hurricane and flood. The workshop was provided in partnership with FEMA, the JCC of Staten Island and the Staten Island Community Organizations Active in Disaster (SI COAD).
Later in the day, on the north shore, the Pride Center of Staten Island and Person Centered Care Services (PCCS) provided a two-hour workshop on building cultural awareness of LGBTQ and persons with disabilities. Participants learned strategies to create, enhance and foster a positive environment for LGBTQ clients, colleagues and individuals and ways to build bridges to better connect, and interact with people who have physical and/or mental disabilities. Our thanks to Pride Center of Staten Island and PCCS for providing this valuable training and to PCCS for hosting the workshop.
