New York City Children's Cabinet

Mayor Bill de Blasio established New York City’s first Children's Cabinet in 2014. The NYC Children’s Cabinet seeks to drive coordination and efficiency across city departments; mobilize resources around the Mayor’s priorities for children; strengthen partnerships with the non-profit and private sectors; and facilitate a holistic approach to serving children by aligning agency policies that affect children’s health, safety, and well-being. The Children’s Cabinet is composed of 24 City agencies and Mayoral offices.

The Children’s Cabinet goals are to:

  • Strengthen partnerships across agencies to meet the needs of vulnerable children and families
  • Engage in collaborative problem solving and share and leverage each other’s resources
  • Enhance communication between and among agencies
  • Inform children’s policies and programs by utilizing linked administrative data from multiple agency systems.
  • Set protocols for access to information, resolving policy conflicts, engaging in joint training and program development and coordinating service delivery.
