Liz Northcutt, LMSW, our Executive Director, has been working in the child welfare system for over a decade. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida, and her Masters in Social Work from New York University. While working within the child welfare system as a social worker at St. Vincent’s Services, Borough Coordinator at Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), and Forensic Social Worker at Comprehensive Family Services, Ms. Northcutt repeatedly saw her young people enter their first apartments with little or none of the supplies needed to turn this empty space into a home.  Ms. Northcutt founded CLNY with the help of other licensed social workers and business professionals who were aware of and concerned with the issues facing youth as they age out of care.
