The New York Center for Children (NYCC) provides free, comprehensive evaluation and therapy services to victims of child abuse and their families.


Because the April fundraising event will need to be rescheduled sometime in the future, we have launched a special fundraising campaign to help the Center continue to function during this critical time.

We need donations now more than ever to continue our Telehealth counseling during the COVID-19 crisis.

We rely on donations to continue dispensing evaluation, intervention and therapy services, free and for a long as needed, to child abuse victims and their families in New York City.


NYCC Response to COVID-19

Whether in the face of a medical outbreak or National State of Emergency, the issues of abuse and healing do not stop.
In fact, they may become more critical. During this time, NYCC is providing our services by phone and telehealth to the children and families we serve.

While our physical office is closed, we are continuing to support our children and families as NYCC has done for the past 25 years. Our professional staff is available to the children and staff and can be reached during regular hours by phone (212-517-3012) or by email (ccrowther@newyorkcenterforchildren.org). If you do not reach us immediately, we will reply as soon as possible.

In the midst of the crisis, our team is remotely providing:

– Therapy Sessions via telephone and video conference technology
– Crisis counseling and support to families
– Telephone triage and referrals
– Professional consultation
– Training for professionals on recognition and response to child abuse
