The Family Center saved hundreds of vulnerable New Yorkers from certain homelessness and mental health crises during the pandemic.
Juanita was just a senior in high school when her mother died from Covid in early 2020. At age 19, she is now going to college, working full-time, and raising her six year-old brother and four year-old sister. Family Center attorneys settled her family’s rent arrears and prevented their eviction only weeks before the courts shut down.
The Family Center clinicians provided Juanita with individual telehealth counseling. Her family participated in our virtual Covid support groups and received multiple Family Center care packages containing non-perishable food items, PPE and even some board games. Juanita and her little brother and sister have a long road ahead, but The Family Center will be there.
