At Catholic Guardian Services, we strive to help families in need and protect children at risk by reaching out to them before they are in the Child Welfare system. Our Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention services and other programs for families help struggling families find solutions to difficult circumstances and grow closer.

CGS participates in Healthy Families New York, a child safety program that also strengthens families, and in “Bridges to Health”, a waiver program that provides at-risk and low-income families with health care services for children.

In the wake of the crisis of so many migrant children coming from Central America and Mexico alone, CGS developed a program for unaccompanied minors to provide shelter, care and safety to them while we work to reunite them with family members or find kin who can care for them.
