Dear Families,

Early on in the COVID-19 crisis, we heard from you, our families, about various challenges you were beginning to face, such as widespread loss of employment, an increase in everyday costs, and, above all, difficulty finding and accessing resources within the community. The Family Resource Center @ MCC was created to address the ongoing needs of all our families in the Lower East Side, operating under the common belief that you deserve to have options when it comes to accessing the best available resources.

This Family Resource Center is run by and composed of a team of trained care professionals each of whom will thoughtfully partner with you in order to help you get connected to services related to housing, food, clothing, employment, safety, legal information, citizenship and immigration, crisis support and more. Our services are confidential and our staff are steadfast partners who care and put your needs and the wellbeing of your family first. If you find that you need a helping hand, please complete the inquiry form below and one of care managers will reach out to you.

We look forward to connecting with you. Be well.

– MCC’s Mental Health and Social Work Wellness Team

Please Note: Services are confidential, and immigration status will not prevent a family member from receiving services.
