The Family Center stands at the intersection of health and social justice.
As the Coronavirus pandemic converges with longstanding racial injustice in NYC, Family Center clients are struggling more than ever. Many have compromised immune systems and fear leaving their homes. Over 92% are people of color who have endured the intergenerational, dual traumas of poverty and racism -not to mention what brings them to our doors: cancer, HIV and a whole host of traumas including undiagnosed mental health issues, child custody challenges, interpersonal and community violence, and other major life stressors.
The Family Center works with families and their children to heal these traumas. We empower them to stay stronger, longer. Our impact is positive and sustainable. Become a part of our community.
