Stabilizing Families

SNCC’s family stabilization services help individuals and families in immediate crisis. SNCC staff and volunteers working with these programs are able to provide a conduit to existing personal and community resources.   Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 10.48.37 PM   These family support services include our:

Basic Needs Programs, which offers families and individuals experiencing hunger, current or imminent homelessness, or other crises access to food, personal items, clothing, direct financial assistance, and referrals.

  • SNCC’s Emergency Food Pantry will provide enough emergency food for three days/nine meals for each individual in the household.
  • SNCC’s Social Work Team, assists with more complex cases by providing individualized case management and coaching to families who have a variety of other needs that threaten their overall stability. SNCC’s Licensed Social Worker supervises Social Work Interns from Syracuse University, which adds capacity to manage more unique cases requiring additional support and attention.
  • Power Source Parenting, which offers peer support and accessible instruction so that pregnant or young parents can develop the skills to raise their children while pursuing their own educational and vocational goals.
