Hacking Foster Care: One-Year Update


In December 2016, ACS held its first ever hackathon—the NYC Foster Care Technology & Policy Hackathon—to bring together the foster care community, including youth in foster care, together with technology experts to think “outside the box” about how to use technology to make the foster care experience better for young people, foster parents, families and those who support them.

At the end of the two-day Hackathon, ACS promised to move some of the proposals forward. Since taking the helm, in February 2017, Commissioner Hansell has continued this commitment to support the development of innovative tech solutions that improve outcomes for children and youth in care.
