NYS Women Inc. will partner with the Family Help Center through the chapter’s “Women Helping Women” program. Since 1973, the Family Help Center has provided services to families raising children, and gives the support one can’t always get from family, neighbors, or even parents. It is a multiservice agency, providing in-home support services to all of Erie County, as well as a New York state-licensed child care facility, Family Help Center Daycare.
It also operates the only 24-hour, 365-day-a-year family crisis intervention and support service in Erie County, offering immediate assistance with no application procedures, no eligibility requirements, and no waiting period.
A press release stated, “The Family Help Center is a ‘home away from home’ for many children and parents. It offers a comfortable and nurturing environment for group interaction, child care programming, parent training sessions, family socials and a variety of other functions. They are dedicated to the prevention and interruption of child abuse and neglect in all of its forms – physical, emotional and sexual. Because the maltreatment of children transcends class, gender, race, ethnic and religious backgrounds, there are no eligibility requirements. To ensure the safety of every child, families are never charged a fee for any services they provide, with the exception of its child care center.”
The Buffalo Niagara Chapter of NYS Women “builds and connects women personally, professionally and politically.” For more information, visit www.bncwomeninc.org.
