New York State Dept. of Social Services, Albany.
This report describes the first-year implementation of the New York State Department of Social Services' (DSS) "No Time to Lose" initiative, whose goal is to implement the recommendations of the New York State Summit on Black and Hispanic Children in conjunction with the Governor's declaration of "The Decade of the Child." During the first year of the 10-year program, DSS focused on the following objectives: (1) the establishment of linkages with other state agencies engaged in Decade of the Child initiatives and programs which affect inner-city children and their families; (2) development and dissemination of informational and training materials to promote the development of concrete responses to local needs; and (3) the engagement of community activists in Blueprints for Action projects, and an increase in community efforts to initiate policies and programs in high need communities in New York State. Blueprint for Action programs at all levels are summarized, the status of each of the Summit's goals is reviewed, and goals for the 1990's are listed. The appendices comprise the following: (1) a list of resources for the Decade of the Child; (2) a summary of recommendations from the Summit; (3) a summary of recent significant New York State legislation; (4) summary "Blueprints for Action" submitted by 31 participating organizations; (5) commentaries on program priorities; and (6) copies of the Fall, Summer and Spring issues of the "No Time to Lose" quarterly newsletter.
