About Children of the City:
Since 1981, Children of the City has been serving the underprivileged children in the inner-city communities of Southwest Brooklyn. Starting out as a children's prevention outreach in the early years, our services have evolved to include trauma intervention, counseling, an after-school and summer program, courtroom and legal advocacy, social work, guardianship, financial counseling, youth mentoring, and other as-needed services to help children and their families achieve success in education, social relationships, home, financial and career. Together we reach the children at home, at school, on the streets and playgrounds, and at our facility.
Our dedicated team includes many certified professionals, along with 50 highly committed and trained volunteers who visit close to one thousand children every single month. During the year we maintain current information on over 1,000 families in the community representing approximately 4,000 children, and use this information as a channel to serve them effectively by earning their trust and giving them the affirmation, encouragement and resources they need. We are able to be a positive influence to the young lives we reach every day, helping to give them a better tomorrow.
