Family Counseling Central Counseling Unit (CCU)

The Central Counseling Unit of  ADAPP is a service designed to supplement our school-based prevention counseling when family involvement is deemed a critical determinant in lessening risk factors and strengthening protective factors. Students who are assessed to be exhibiting current suicidal behavior or mental health disorders are referred to other outside agencies.

The ADAPP Central Counseling Unit is located in the Bronx ADAPP Office. It is staffed by master’s level social workers and counselors. Services include individual, group and family counseling. Fees are on a sliding scale. Financial disclosure is required for a negotiated fee. This service is available to program schools and to schools not receiving services.

Support Services

Through a generous grant from the Cabrini Foundation, and in cooperation with the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, ADAPP is able to offer family support services to underserved families in select schools in the Archdiocese of NY.

Family Support Case Managers are available to meet with and assess the health and wellness needs of underserved children and families by screening, assessing, and linking families to available services. The screening process is intended to identify and encourage qualified families to take advantage of the National School Lunch Program and similar benefits programs.

In addition to facilitating access to the National School Lunch Program, families will be referred to ACCESS NYC, a free online platform provided by the New York City Municipal Government that helps residents determine whether or not they qualify for over 30 benefits programs funded either completely or jointly by the City, State, and Federal governments.

Community resources are available for families in need of assistance. In addition, ACCESS NYC is an online public screening tool that you can use to determine the City, State, and Federal health and human service benefit programs for which you are potentially eligible to enroll. For families that live outside of NYC, you may use the similar screening tool myBenefits.
