Over the last several years, we have focused on human service delivery: the challenges being faced and innovations being forged in our local communities. Today state and local governments are under tremendous pressure to do more with less. Nowhere is this more evident than in the delivery of human services—that social safety net bringing to those most in need a leg up, well-being, and ultimately self-sufficiency.

Robert Doar has been as effective in this very difficult role in NYC as he was for the state of NY...he is praised by Republican and Democratic representatives alike. We are very lucky to have such dedicated people working in the public sector.

Robert Doar is completely out of touch with real economics and is so driven by an obsolete notion of work that he unfortunately cannot see that it makes no sense fiscally to force very low income mothers to enter the paid workforce. Doar's Back to Work program at HRA for example, spent $10K per capita to place each low income mother participating in a temporary job (less than 180 days guaranteed placement). Any business that would pay $10K to place a worker for only 6 months without accomplishing its mission (in this case reducing the worker's poverty) would be out of business.
