Jim Purcell oversees valuable resources for New York-based nonprofit organizations that serve youth, providing training programs and vital guidance on changing regulations. More than 100 member organizations rely on the Council of Family and Child Caring Agencies to advocate for them before local and state government. Purcell previously served at the Division for Youth and the Department of Social Services, which were the predecessor agencies to the state Office of Children and Family Services.
Correction: An earlier version of this profile incorrectly described Purcell's organization as a state agency. It is not.
