Community Services

LIFT works with community-based organizations to provide programs and educational services for fragile families in need of support and assistance.

Parenting Workshops

Parenting Workshops can help you build healthy lifestyles for yourself and your children, and develop stronger bonds with your children and co-parents. We cover topics such as child development, money management, positive discipline, and healthy relationships. Many participants find it helpful to be a part of a group where other people are experiencing similar challenges and can truly understand what you’re going through.

LIFT’s 12-week Parenting Workshops are free of charge. Each week, we provide a Metrocard and lunch, and at the end of the series you will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Mothers Support Groups

Our Mothers Support Group is intended for women in a caregiving role, whether a mother, grandmother, or guardian. If you have legal questions about your child support or custody case, or are involved in a Family Court matter without an attorney, please join us for our weekly Mothers Support Group. This group is free of charge, and Metrocards and lunch are provided.
