A new initiative is being launched in Niskayuna Monday, that’s the first of its kind in the state.

It’s called Nisky Connects, and it aims to improve access to mental health services and social need programs for all residents.

It provides a referral network of nearly 600 organizations across 22 counties in the state, for needs like food, housing and health care.

Nisky Connects is free to residents and town employees, and comes at zero cost to the town.
