Information About Social Security Numbers


As you are aware, the CSC has implemented procedures to ensure the collection of SSNs and uniform pseudo-SSNs in order to enable us to use information from other data bases (School system, Dept. of  Juvenile Justice, Dept. of Children & Families) to evaluate the impact of CSC-funded programs on rates of delinquency, abuse and neglect, school success, etc.  New laws concerning the collection of SSNs have created another change that will require your cooperation.  In order to ensure timely compliance with the law, you will need to begin to inform all of your program participants of the reason for the collection of SSNs, in writing beginning Jan. 31, 2008, using the following language. This language will be monitored for compliance. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact your Program Manager immediately. Thank you for your usual excellent cooperation!

"The Children’s Services Council of Broward County (“CSC”) collects and uses the social security numbers of participants of CSC-funded programs and the parents/guardians of such participants so that CSC may collect and use data from other agencies for comparison purposes in order for CSC to track and measure the impact of CSC-funded programs. This also helps CSC with maintaining and improving successful programs and services.  All individual information is safeguarded and will not be disclosed.  CSC’s collection of social security numbers from its participants and the parents/guardians is critical for the performance of CSC’s duties and responsibilities as prescribed by law.  Social security numbers collected by CSC shall not be used by CSC for any purpose other than the purpose provided in this written statement.”

"The Children's Services Council (CSC) kolekte ak itilize nimero sosyal timoun ak paran/gadyen ki patisipe nan pwogram yo, epi yo kololekte lòt infòmasyon ke yo pran nan lòt ajans pou yo itilize li pou yo fè konpareson e pou yo ka suiv ak mesire efè pwogram ke yo finanse. Sa ede CSC mentni ak amelyore sevis ak pwogram ki bay siksè. Infòmasyon tout moun byen pwoteje e yo pap pibliye'l. Daprè la lwa, koleksyon nimero sosyal moun ki patisipe nan pwogram yo ak nimero paran /gadyen yo ekstrèmman impòtan pou CSC ka pefòme devwa yo ak reponsabilite yo. CSC pa pral itilize nimero sosyal ke yo kolekte pou lòt bagay eksepte pou sa ki dekri an lè-a."

"El Children's Services Council (CSC) del condado de Broward obtiene y utiliza los números de seguro social de los participantes y padres o guardianes de personas que participan en los programas financiados por CSC para que CSC pueda recaudar y utilizar la información de otras agencias con el propósito de trazar y medir el impacto de los programas apoyados por CSC. Esto también ayuda a CSC a mantener y mejorar programas y servicios. Toda información individual es asegurada y nunca será compartida. La colección de parte de CSC de los números de seguro social de los participantes y sus padres o guardianes es crítica para el rendimiento de los deberes y las responsabilidades de CSC, así como están establecidos por ley.

The Faces of CSC

The greatest tool you can give a child is the ability to persuade and speak with confidence. Being that my YIG experience positively impacted my emotional literacy skills, I would like to pass these on to those who are less fortunate.
