Overview

The Bronx Family Center provides much-needed social and health care services in a location that is convenient for the surrounding community. The Children's Aid Society established the center in 2000 in response to a need for integrated services that meet children's needs from infancy to young adulthood. Services provided at the Bronx Family Center include:

  • Foster care.
  • Preventive care that can help keep families together.
  • Medical, dental and teen health services.
  • Mental health and family wellness (domestic violence) assistance.
  • An on-site day care center.

The newest addition to the Bronx Family Center campus is the Next Generation Teen Center, which opened its permanent location in 2008.

Children's Aid also hosts a Community Re-Entry program in collaboration with the Bronx Boys & Girls Club. This program serves youth returning to their communities following placement in juvenile detention facilities.

In addition to the Bronx Family Center, Children's Aid's presence in the Bronx includes five Community Schools programs at nearby C.S.61 Francisco Oller School, Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom Middle and High School, C.S. 211 The Bilingual Magnet School and Children's Aid College Prep Charter School.
