Thank you to Debra Schimpf and SCAP! She is a great and dedicated leader, and the agency is a critical component of our community. Also, the suggestion above regarding employment is actually being implemented -- programs that are connecting people moving out of poverty with employers and working with the employer to support and retain those employees. SCAP is a main player, along with City Mission, Ellis Medicine, SCCC and several others.

Consolidation is not in or of itself the answer to improving management and governance. The benefit of a stand-alone organization is its intense focus on its particular mission. That may well be at risk if absorbed in to an organization that does not have arts as its primary mission and passion. I seriously hope that NYS will first look at how the management and board can be revitalized, as it did with SPAC a few years ago. That approach proved highly successful.
