Nurturing Parenting Program
The Nurturing Parenting program is a component of the WJCS Trager Lemp Center: Treating Trauma and Promoting Resilience. The center utilizes research-proven treatment and services to help survivors heal from the trauma of abuse, violence and other adverse life experiences. Center programs and activities are also designed to prevent violence and aggression by adults and children.
The Nurturing Parenting program is a support group that provides a series of trauma-informed, preventative, educational workshops and comprehensive supports for women and their young children who live in Yonkers and are affected by domestic violence. Participants are provided on-site childcare, dinner and MetroCards. Participants do not need to be currently involved with services in WJCS mental health clinics.
This program is funded through the New York State Children and Family Trust Fund, a program administered under the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
