View resources from this program.
The City of New York delivers most human services through $5 billion in annual contracts with non-profit providers. However, there are insufficient opportunities for lower-level social service case workers at these providers to acquire the education needed to move up a career ladder to more responsibility and better compensation. The result is a two-tiered job market that confines many women of color to the lower tier making inadequate wages.
In this program, we will explore a unique opportunity to address this challenge.
- An evolving proposal for the nonprofit sector to work with City Hall to revamp City contracts to raise wages for lower-paid social service providers, and to develop a robust career ladder system with necessary supports
- The potential for this approach, given the mayor’s commitment to aid low-wage workers and improve the quality of human services delivery
