The Children’s Aid Society’s Long-Term PINS (Persons in Need of Supervision) Preventive programs in Brooklyn and Manhattan provide families access to ongoing family counseling and case management services. These programs focus on helping families develop the skills needed to cope with the stresses — including poverty, substance use, domestic violence and other intractable problems — that many PINS children and their families face. These programs also seek to reduce the number of PINS youngsters placed in foster care.
