As a lifeline to the greater Westchester area, Family Ties of Westchester, Inc. works to build stronger families and communities. Family Ties provides support and advocacy services to families in times of crisis and beyond. We believe in a family's ability to succeed and encourage them to tap into their own strengths and develop new skills. Family Ties works with families in relationships based on equality and respect. Together, staff and families identify resources that promote emotional wellness and encourage families to be resources not only to their own members, but to other families, programs, and communities.
Family Ties offers a wide range of support groups, advocacy services, parent coaching, and connection to community resources, as well as respite and youth development opportunities. We recognize you, the caregiver, as a full partner in planning for your family's success based on your family's unique strengths and culture. The majority of our service staff have struggled, just like you, with their own children's challenges and have personal experience in accessing services and supports for their own families. We act as the family voice in a variety of meetings to ensure that families' thoughts and concerns are heard. All Family Ties services are free, confidential and community-based. We have a "never give up" philosophy and will be here to support you for as long as you need us.
