The Family Preservation Center, opened on the ground floor of MBSCC's landmark Andrew Freedman Home in 1998, provides comprehensive support services to enhance family stability and self-sufficiency through a "one-stop shop" approach. Services are provided through the collaboration of MBSCC and other organizations, and include affordable child care, comprehensive case management, basic education/literacy, ESL, immigration services, community organizing, counseling, community health services, nutrition programs (WIC), in-home visiting services, youth services, prenatal care, and housing for those living with HIV/AIDS. The center also houses MBSCC's Job Resource Center, which provides employment training and job referrals to community members, as well as a Technology Center that trains residents in basic computer skills. MBSCC is one of only nine organizations in New York State to have received a commitment of State funding to establish a family preservation and support center.
