Centers of Excellence
The Strong Families and Communities Training Center
Partnering with the New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, The Foundling was proud to launch our Strong Families and Communities Training Center in October of 2020. The three core areas The Center focuses on include: trainings and technical assistance, implementation support for evidence-based practices, and coalition building and community engagement. These areas will equip, support, and train front-line social service workers and community members with best practice techniques and approaches to make an impact in the communities they serve in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.
The trainings allow for open discussion and provide a safe space where questions can be answered on a diverse set of topics. No matter which service is offered by The Center, community voices are critical to helping shape what we offer. We incorporate these voices through listening sessions and consistent community feedback with trained community organizers.
