We serve young people with serious emotional disturbances and mental illness in specialized community residences in Brooklyn. Many have lived away from families for years, in institutional or foster care settings that have left them unprepared for adult life. Residences offer emotional support, help with independent living skills and counseling to strengthen ties with families.
