Homes for the Homeless operates the Prospect Family Support Center (PFSC), located at the Prospect in the South Bronx. PFSC is an invaluable resource for New York City families as it offers a wide range of free services to families in crisis including overnight respite care, case management and service referrals, and parenting workshops and support groups. PFSC’s primary mission is to protect children from abuse and neglect and prevent unnecessary out-of-home placements, while helping build stronger families.
UPDATE: July 2, 2019
It has been our pleasure to work with such a great community network; thank you for your partnership, dedication, and commitment to the families of NYC. To get to know each parent and child has been a privilege over the last year. At this time the PFSC will suspend services effective July 3, 2019. Please note that we will continue to make referrals to our partner agencies as we aim to connect families to appropriate resources.
Anyone in need of emergency care for your child is encouraged to please contact NY Foundling at (212) 886-4000 or (888) 435-7553.
