Annually The Family Center serves 2,500 vulnerable NYC families with social, legal, and mental health services. Our clients, most often living below the federal poverty level, strive to provide for their children despite their tremendous financial disadvantages. The inability to provide for their children along with affording daily living expenses can make the holiday seasons very difficult for our client families. Because of this, The Family Center brings the holiday spirit to every client child with a holiday party including gifts, food, and Santa.
This year the Leadership Council (LC) is helping to fund this event, which includes food, arts and crafts, and a space. Please bring this special event to over 1,500 children, who otherwise may not have a holiday celebration. This event gives our children much needed time to forget their families' daily struggles and allows them to just be children, which every child deserves.
