An Outing for Our New Youth Advisory Board

The Family Center recently launched a Youth Advisory Board to help us develop programming for NYC youth and identify emerging needs of youth in our community.

On February 16th, they went on a outing in Dumbo.  Enjoy the fun photos of our fabulous Family Center teens!

Twenty-five years went by in a flash. So much has changed, and yet much remains the same. For example, The Family Center mission has changed, but the professional, compassionate, trauma-informed way that we work with client families has never changed -and never will change.
