Family & Youth

Family Action Support Workers work with DSS referred families to keep children safe and healthy and to reduce or eliminate the risks of out-of-home placement for children. Our Youth Mentors meet weekly with youth (ages 8 to 15) to provide a supportive and trusting relationship, help children gain new experiences, and lay the ground work for social and academic success.

Healthy Families NY
