Beacon Preventive offers unique comprehensive family support by providing a set of social services to the youth and families within the Queens community. All Preventive Services are free to families with one or more children between the ages 0 to 17.5 years old, residing in community district 12 and surrounding municipal districts. Services are geared toward family stabilization and increased use of community support.
The goal for each enrolled family is to identify and develop parent strengths that support nurturing interactions and encourage the use of community resources. We are open Monday-Thursday 9:00 A.M – 7:00 P.M. and Friday 9:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M.
The staff here at Beacon Preventive work collaboratively with parents so that their children can achieve their personal best socially, emotionally, and academically. Beacon Preventive provides an array of services such as family and individual casework counseling, ACD referrals, Family Planning Counseling, Substance Abuse Screening, and Domestic Violence Assessment. Every Spring and Fall, this program offers a 12-week Parenting Journey course and Anger Management Group. For services not directly provided, a referral can be made for the family.
