Description: New York City's Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) has brought lessons learned from pioneering domestic violence projects in other states to the largest urban child welfare system in the nation—and services here are changing for the better. Important improvements have been made in ACS field offices and in its legal practice. Domestic violence expertise has also grown among human service nonprofits. This report looks at some of the changes and discusses where practitioners, advocates and others hope to go next. These recommendations reflect the results of several dozen interviews. They were developed by the advisory board and staff of the Child Welfare Watch project, with the intention of supporting efforts to improve how ACS and its contract agencies serve children and families dealing with violence in the home.
