CAMBA’s Families for Kids program is a foster care prevention program that operates in conjunction with CAMBA’s Beacon Community Center at P.S. 361. The program helps families focus on pragmatic solutions to difficult situations that impact the safety of children. By identifying and targeting specific everyday events in the life of a family that have caused the family difficulty and through partnership with Families and other service providers, FFK helps families address risk to the safety of children and restore the family’s pride in their own competence – thus reducing the risk of out of home placement.
Additional support services are also provided such as parenting workshops, parent support groups, assistance with government entitlements, health concerns, referrals for treatment programs and other barriers that may be causing the family additional stress in caring for their children.
This program is funded by NYC Administration for Children’s Services.
