Prevention & Family Support
The Child Center of NY helps parents and other caregivers develop the tools to raise their children in a safe and nurturing environment. We provide support for many different kinds of families—from those currently involved with the child protection system to those who simply feel overwhelmed by the stresses of their daily lives. Whatever their situation, we empower caregivers to handle challenges in a positive and constructive way. All of our programs include parent education, family counseling, home visits by Master’s-level social workers and other trained case planners, and an emphasis on keeping families together. We prevent children from entering foster care by helping caregivers create and maintain a safe and supportive home.
