SKIP of NY Helps New York’s Sickest Children

Over 800,000 children in New York suffer from autism, developmental disabilities, birth defects or the effects of disabling accidents. SKIP (Sick Kids [Need] Involved People) acts as a free medical concierge, connecting children to the services and equipment they need to get well and live at home rather than in hospitals or institutions.

SKIP transforms the lives of the 5,000 medically vulnerable children it helps each year. And, in an average year, SKIP saves over $50 million in public expense.

The award-winning SKIP is the only 501(c)(3) of its kind in New York. Since its launch in 1983, it has helped over 25,000 children.

Backpacks 2016 line up

Members of DTCC’s Asian and Black Business Professional Networks recently joined forces to collect essential school supplies and backpacks that were distributed to SKIP of New York families. It was a great opportunity for our employees to band together in the spirit of community – and with a bit of interdepartmental encouragement and competition, just for fun.  AT DTCC, our employees stand behind the motto, “We Make a Difference” – which not only refers to the work that we do in bringing stability and reliability to the global financial markets, but also to the impact we aspire to have on the local communities where we live and operate around the globe. We’re inspired by SKIP of New York’s mission to support well-deserving children and families who are facing medical challenges that so many of us take for granted, and we are proud to do our part in supporting this organization.
