The Strong Families and Communities Training Center (SFC Center) was established in October, 2020 in partnership with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to support front-line social service workers and community members with techniques to better serve their communities across New York City. As a center focused on supporting community initiatives and community-based organizations, we work with our partners to elevate and empower community voices in all aspects. Moreover, our center provides direct support to those who serve youth and families, while also establishing a network of organizations advocating for child welfare and community development. Through sharing resources and centralizing information, we hope to become a layer of support for navigating social services. The SFC Center strives to integrate ourselves into the community to ensure that community voices are at the forefront of our initiatives.
