Our Family Strengthening Program (also known as Family Preservation) connects parents and children with a safety net of services to address the nature of crises that cause stress and threaten a family’s ability to remain intact. Some of the services provided are individual and/or family therapy and assistance with housing and employment. All of these services are intended to reduce the stress on the parent and reduce the risk of out of home placement for children.
Harlem Dowling extends its track record of success in preserving families to the communities of Central Harlem, Far Rockaway, Washington Heights, and Jamaica. The agency collaborates with a host of community partners and organizations dedicated to preserving the integrity of families and keeping children safe and at home in the community. We believe the success of the agency’s work is reliant upon the strength of families to find their own solutions, with the help of caring professionals.
Harlem Dowling-West Side Center facilitates Parenting Journey Training for individuals throughout all of our programs. Training is offered at our Queens Outreach, Far Rockaway, and Central Office locations. Each location will begin the next cycle of Parenting Journey Training in September. Please contact each location for more information.
