Family Stabilization

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 Stabilization 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 Stabilization 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 following is a list of our Family Stabilization programs.  Please click on the name of the service or the [+] to learn more about each program:
