We can’t do our critical, transformative work unless we support and foster strength in the people doing that work. Addressing trauma and self-care strategies is a form of capacity building for your organization. The Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC) and the Mental Health Association of New York City (MHA-NYC) are offering a series of FREE workshops to learn frameworks for self-care, develop resources, and to build relationships within the sector.
On behalf of the NPCC team, I'd like to wish you a happy New Year and take a moment to reflect on where we've been and where we're going.
Nonprofits were at the center of many policy and societal debates in 2017, whether we were the front page story or not.

Three nonprofit organizations have been chosen as the winners of the 2017 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards—a program created and managed by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC)—for demonstrating excellence in nonprofit management in NPCC’s Eight Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence.
We heard from members, capacity builders, and other umbrella organizations that they were in need of response to the trauma – both direct and vicarious – that their staff and constituents were experiencing. During periods of ongoing traumatic events, as nonprofit staff we need an intentional, structured and consistent approach to both take care of ourselves and support our communities.
