About Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC):
Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC) is a community based, non-profit organization, in Bedford-Stuyvesant (Bed Stuy), Brooklyn, whose mission is to embrace the children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system.
Recognizing the severe trauma and profound psychological consequences that children experience in association with losing a parent to incarceration, CPNYC successfully developed an innovative model that infuses mental health practices, perspectives and language into all aspects of after-school and summer day camp programming. The model pairs together after school youth workers with mental health practitioners who work side by side to support each child and holistically address their needs. Program activities are designed to promote emotional processing, combining the best practices of youth development with mental health strategies and techniques. This is a bold new approach to after-school programming that engages young people and their families in an authentically empowering environment, specifically designed to meet their needs and achieve successful outcomes.
