Who We Are

The Family Center’s mission is to strengthen families affected by crisis, illness or loss to create a more secure present and future for their children.



We work to keep New York
families stronger, longer.








With a business-minded approach to running our organization, The Family Center provides expert social and legal services, including health-care coordination, to vulnerable New York families confronting crisis or loss.

A Pfizer Foundation-funded study has proven that HIV+ consumers’ immune systems grow stronger as The Family Center works with them. This means healthier parents are able to care for their children.

Clients and the larger community benefit from:

  • The Family Center’s immediate, hands-on assistance to families facing a crisis, particularly problems stemming from the loss or serious illness of a parent or primary caregiver.
  • Our coordinated support programs promote sustainable family stability and build communities among families who support one another.
