Our newest facility, the two-floor, newly renovated Manhattan Preventive Services Center, celebrated its opening with an official ribbon cutting ceremony on June 14. Many Children’s Aid staff members as well as Assemblyman Herman D. Farrell Jr., Deputy ACS Commissioner Jacqueline McKnight and a representative from Councilwoman Inez Dickens’ office attended the event, celebrating the opening and viewing the space of our new Manhattan home for the 32-year-old Preventive Services Program.

The Preventive Services Program at The Children’s Aid Society provides a comprehensive array of family-focused and home-based intervention services, aimed at strengthening families and alleviating stressors for children. Key components include:

•Individual, family and group counseling

•Teen and parenting groups

•Parenting guidance

•Case management services

•Advocacy

We are also proud to share that Preventive Services has received high praise from the ACS and a renewed city contract for the next 10 years, allowing us to continue our high-quality family support services for communities in Upper Manhattan.
