Let’s Talk Vendor Agencies

News

So you want to talk about Vendor Agencies? Great, we can do that! Usually when talking with people about Vendor agencies there are many more questions than answers.  CCNY’s Vendor Support Services Coordinator has put together a little FAQ on Vendor Agencies. Check it out!

What is Family Voices Network?

Erie County’s Family Voices Network(FVN) brings together families, community, and child serving agencies to help children and youth be successful at home, in the community, and in relationships.   FVN uses the evidence based practice of Wraparound for Erie County families involved with multiple service agencies (Mental Health, Juvenile Justice, Child Welfare, Schools, etc.) who need help keeping their children or youth in the home, school, or community.

What is Wraparound?

Wraparound is a family-driven, team-based process for planning and implementing services and supports. Through the wraparound process, teams create plans that are geared toward meeting the unique and holistic needs of children and youth with complex needs and their families. The wraparound team members (e.g., the identified youth, his or her parents/caregivers, other family, mental health professionals, educators, and others) meet regularly to implement and monitor the plan to ensure its success.

What is a Vendor Agency?

Critical Research for Your Independence Day Party

News

Independence Day weekend is coming. We gathered research for Memorial Day and it’s just as important this weekend as it was then.

Are you prepared? Do you know which hot dog to buy and hot to fix them to make your guests happy? Are you sure? Don’t worry. CCNY has done the research. Now you have everything you need to know before you get to Wegmans, Tops, or Dash’s.

In the following graphs, the dark blue sections have the greatest number of the total response for each question. So, if the number of males who liked ballpark hot dogs was the greatest of everyone asked, they would be the darkest color blue. If a group was the fewest, they will be a light color green.

Which Dogs To Cook?

First, how do you know what to cook? It turns out, your best chance of getting it right is buy a bunch of Sahlen’s and a bit of Wardynski’s. If you have a large gathering, grab some Hebrew National.  


How to Cook Them?

Gas, charcoal, boil, or something else. Well, the data doesn’t lie. Charcoal is the one most people prefer. Of course, they are wrong – it’s gas, but everyone has their faults.

What if you live in Evans?

Finally, charcoal and Sahlens are the most favored choices, but are there differences based on where people live? Generally, no, except for Evans. If you live in Evans within Erie County, boil a Wardynski dog and watch your guest enjoy.


So enjoy your Independence Day weekend everyone. Grill some dogs.

Geekery about Evaluation Methods

47 respondents were asked a 4 question survey regarding their hot dog preferences, favorite cooking method, and demographics. Responses were collected for 10 days, and the form was posted on three social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn). All responses were confidential and anonymous.

Western New York, Should You Uber/Lyft to Work and Ditch Your Car?

News

Ride-hailing services such as Lyft and Uber are coming to Western New York on June 29th. Having used both services in other cities, I’m so excited. I hate driving. I would love the convenience of owning a car without the hassle. Being a data person, I wondered what the yearly cost of owning vs. ubering to work be. In other words, can I get rid of my car and just digitally hitch a ride.I found a great website that gives annual costs for owning a car and insurance for a year. Since Buffalo’s fare estimates are not available, I decided to compare us to Green Bay. They have a similar pricing model as we do and similar size to Buffalo. Here is the annual cost of owning vs. ubering.

So, it looks like I will be owning my car still. A least I have Uber and Lyft for going out, watching games, and getting home safely.

Methodology

For those data geeks who love the details, here’s how we came up with our numbers.

We used Green Bay UberX pricing which averages 22- 29 each way. We assumed a nine-mile trek to work every day for 48 weeks (2 weeks of vacation, sick, and other paid leave).

Improving Wellness at CCNY

News

This year, in order to support wellness within our agency, our company started a new Paid, Paid Vacation bi-monthly event. Every two months, we draw a random name from everyone who is staff at CCNY. Once a name is pulled, that person must take two days off and they receive $300 dollars to use during that time. These days are in addition to their normal paid time off. The staff person must use the money towards those wellness days.

Our first recipient was Christa Foschio-Bebak. Here’s what she said about it: “I enjoyed my wellness perk this month. I used it towards a family trip to Letchworth State Park. See the attached pictures! Thanks again!”
