Help for Families

If you're in need of emergency assistance, please call us at 518-371-1185. Our family empowerment programs are listed below.

  • Family Development mentors are available to meet with individuals or families on a one-on-one basis. These trained volunteers provide confidential help to people in areas such as resume building, job searches, and budgeting. Mentors are aware of many resources in Saratoga County, and can be a great support to people who are going through a difficult time.

  • We provide advocacy, support groups, information and referral, proactive intervention, respite and skills-building for families with children who have social and/or emotional challenges in fourteen counties throughout the Capital District, Central New York, the Mohawk Valley, and North Country. Call 518-371-1185 for information.

  • A 12-16 week group workshop to help people stabilize their situations and build resources to improve their lives. Participants create their own plan for a sustainable life, explore resources needed for sustainability, build healthy relationships with others, begin the process of writing their own future stories, and examine how they can change the legacy they leave to their families and community. Call 518-371-1185 for more information.
