May 8th, 2024
Shivoo, a first-of-its-kind digital staffing platform helping families find caregivers for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (“IDD”), announces a partnership with Kingsborough Community College, a Brooklyn-based CUNY school, and its newly minted Direct Service Professional (DSP) training program. As a partner, Shivoo will share information about the CUNY program with the platform’s registered staff, currently comprising approximately 1,500 caregivers throughout New York State, including the greater New York Metro area.
