Task Forces

Through member-led task forces, WCC conducts research, publishes reports, fosters dialogue with public officials, launches public education and advocacy campaigns, and promotes civic engagement.

By joining and leading these task forces, members have a unique opportunity to help New Yorkers achieve economic stability, enjoy equal opportunity, and live in safe and secure communities.

Task Force on the Citywide Resource Guide

In September 2015, WCC in partnership with Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, released its 2015 Citywide Guide to Services and Resources in Brooklyn in print and online. In January 2016, WCC released its 2016 Citywide Guide to Services and Resources in Manhattan in print and online. 

Throughout the year, the Task Force will develop and distribute the print and post the online version of the remaining three boroughs.

If you are interested in assisting in the development and distribution of the new Guide, please join the group at its next meeting.
