Family Services

Family Services and Programs

From prevention programs tailored for at-risk families to homeless prevention programs that help people in danger of losing their homes, Family Services programs strengthen families and help them stay together.

For young adults, we provide a second chance to keep them off the streets and give them real purpose for the future, through such programs as the YAIP (Young Adult Internship) Program. Our Out of School Time afterschool programs provide a mix of academic, recreational and cultural activities for young people (grades K-12) after school, during holidays and in the summer, in a safe and supportive environment.

In addition, our Refugee Resettlement Program has helped those from around the world who have suffered political, religious or socio-economic oppression, including assistance in applying for Social Security cards and political asylum, ESL, employment assistance and medical check-ups.

These are just a few of the Family Services programs that serve the diverse communities of Brooklyn and Queens. Through all these venues, Catholic Charities offers families second chances to find real purpose for the future and enhance the quality of life.

The Dr. Elizabeth Lutas Center is the home to CCBQ's Brooklyn Homebase Homelessness Prevention and East New York Family Support Programs. 

In fitting with the CCBQ mission of providing vulnerable individuals and families, the Homelessness Prevention program is funded by the New York City Department of Homeless Services (DHS). Through their partnership, CCBQ and DHS continue to focus on providing the most basic services of case management, financial assistance and advocacy.

With the East New York Family Support Center, the Dr. Elizabeth Lutas Center offers direct assistance to keep families together. For more than 30 years, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has worked closely, the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), especially in the East New York community. Catholic Charities has five programs with ACS, three for general prevention and two for family treatment rehabilitation. Working with the core principle of families being the foundation of society, CCBQ case managers work directly with families to develop a long-term plan that best meets the client’s needs. 

All clients must be at risk of homelessness which may be due to overcrowding, discord, substandard housing and/or eviction. For a household with children: income must be below 200% of the federal poverty level and the family must have a pending, open, or sanctined public benefit such as Public Assistance, Medicaid, or Food Stamps. For a household with adults only: income must be very low (30% AMI) and the household must have limited support networks.
