We provide critical therapy to traumatized youth in our community.

  • At 16 years-old, Sonja is a survivor. Gang-raped repeatedly back in her native Guatemala, she travelled 2,000 miles north alone and spent six weeks in an immigration detention center. Now living with her mother in Brooklyn, Sonja has come to The Family Center. She suffers crippling migraines and frightening flashbacks.

    Sonja receives specialized, trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at The Family Center. Over 85% of youth, like Sonja, who receive Family Center therapeutic services, experience fewer symptoms in less than six months. Now enrolled in school and learning English, Sonja has hope that she can move beyond the nightmare she overcame.

    Donate today to support youth and families struggling with trauma.  Give hope to children like Sonja.
