Founded in 1915, CGR has been delivering expert support to the public, nonprofit and private sectors for a century. Originally, we were incorporated as the Rochester (NY) Bureau of Municipal Research, and were established by founder George Eastman with a mandate to “get things done for the community” we call home. Although our passion for delivering promising solutions has never changed, both the geographic area and clients we serve have broadened dramatically. Today we have a national reach and can be found working with a diverse range of agencies, organizations and communities.
In an arena served almost exclusively by for-profit consultancies, CGR stands apart. Since our founding, we have operated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a status that insulates us from political bias and holds us accountable to our clients’ true shareholders – the communities they serve – positioning them as more desirable places to live and work.
Just like our clients, we’re in the business of making a difference.
Peter Nabozny joined CGR in 2014 with strong financial management, budgeting and project management expertise and a demonstrated ability to plan, implement and evaluate diverse programs. Previously he was Assistant Commissioner of Research and Evaluation in New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services, the NYC agency responsible for all child welfare, juvenile justice, early care and education services.
He directed program evaluation and performance management reporting for all child protective services, foster care, preventive services, and juvenile justice programs, and supervised a staff of 90. In addition, he oversaw annual evaluations of foster care and preventive service providers; developed new performance and evaluation measures for detention and juvenile justice placement programs; supervised development of outcomes reports for all agency programs; and created predictive models for repeat maltreatment and foster care re-entry.
Prior to joining the New York City agency he served for eight years in increasingly responsible positions for the Jewish Child Care Association, a nonprofit, nonsectarian, multi-cultural child and family service foster care and adoption agency offering services throughout NYC. Most recently he was Director of Quality Management with responsibility for quality improvement and assurance across 27 programs – ranging from foster care and residential care to mental health and educational support services – with a total enrollment of 7,000 children.
Early in his career Mr. Nabozny served as a consultant with New York State’s Office of Children and Family Services, which was then implementing a new case management system. Known as CONNECTIONS, the system was developed to track tens of thousands of children in New York State receiving child welfare services, and also provide a link between the Office of Children and Family Services and public and private service providers.
Mr. Nabozny earned his masters in public and nonprofit administration at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, and his undergraduate degree in American history from the University of Rochester.
