FDNY Foundation Supports FDNY Counseling Services Unit

The FDNY Foundation is happy to again support the tremendous work of the FDNY Counseling Services Unit with a grant of more than $1.1 million in funding for FY21. The COVID-19 emergency has placed significant strain on the FDNY workforce, particularly members of EMS who have seen a historic increase in workload and an unprecedented amount of death and loss. Many of them have also suffered sickness and loss in their personal lives, compounding the stress they have faced over the last few months. The FDNY Counseling Services Unit (CSU) has seen their number of sessions increase significantly and through various programs and outreach meeting the needs of our FDNY members and their families.
