Denis Peralta is currently the Unit Director of ICS’s Middle School Program/Summer Camp at PS/MS 278. She holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from Utica College. Having six years as an employee at Inwood Community Services, Ms. Peralta was first hired as a Summer Youth Employment Participant in 2009, and later became an Activity Specialist for the program at PS/MS 278. Over the years, her drive has been to role model values of compassion, respect and responsibility to the participants. For any other information, she can be reached at DenisP@inwoodcs.org or via phone at 212-942-0043 ext. 110 (Inwood Office) 917-521-2060 ext. 1012 (PS/MS 278 Office).
As an IRS 501 (c)(3) free standing community-based and community-guided not-for-profit organization in the heart of Inwood, ICS has survived financially over the past 36+ years through essentially three sources of revenue:
- Government contracts attained through rigorous RFP (Request for Proposal) processes
- Medicaid, Medicare and insurance fees for ICS’s professionally-licensed clinical services
- The generosity of community residents and other ICS supporters
This last category of support enables ICS to enhance certain of its programs and activities and also offset the costs of what have become ICS traditions: the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Fund and the annual ICS Christmas Holiday Toy Drive.
