At our headquarters in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, Children of Promise, NYC serves more than 350 children and their families each year. Our innovative model was developed to address the specific emotional trauma that can be triggered by losing a parent to incarceration. CPNYC is the only agency in NYC that co-locates a licensed mental health clinic with an after-school program and summer day camp, seamlessly providing access to therapeutic services and youth development all under one roof.
CPNYC helps to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system by serving each child’s needs as comprehensively as possible. The cycle can only be broken if social, economic and educational inequities are addressed.
