Child Placement Prevention Services


Our preventive programs, funded by the NYC Administration for Children's Services, provide services to families at risk and are geared to improving family self-care and self-support, thus preventing initial placement, re-entry or shortening length of stay in foster care. The preventive programs combine casework, psychiatric counseling and treatment with a variety of proven support and concrete services to frame interventions that support the Latino and non-Latino family and strengthen communities plagued by multiple social and economic stressors. Its comprehensive cultural and language responsive practices highly ensure that children and adolescents have permanent relationships with caring adults.
