Shared Values — a cause and an action.
The Child Center of NY
Mission: We strengthen children and families with skills, opportunities and emotional support to build healthy, successful lives.
About: The Child Center of NY began in 1953 as a children's counseling center in Queens. Today, we are a powerful community presence throughout NYC, reaching more than 16,000 children and their families each year. Our mission is to strengthen children and families with skills, opportunities, and emotional support to build healthy, successful lives. We guide children from birth to adulthood with evidence-based, innovative programs that engage them with school and help them become secure, capable, and confident. We work in four main program areas:
- Early childhood education (including Monday-to-Friday Head Start programs)
- Behavioral health (including individual and family counseling)
- Child abuse prevention and family support (including family counseling and parent education)
- Youth development (including our many after-school programs and community schools)
