Northside Center for Child Development, Inc.

To support a new Assistant Program Coordinator – Clinic in Schools (“CIS”) to oversee the expansion of their CIS program to 4 additional schools (for a new total of 15 schools). This unique program provides on-site therapeutic services to public school students having unmet behavioral health needs, bringing clinicians directly to children in schools to better ensure that behavioral and emotional difficulties do not needlessly keep them from thriving. Unlike other school-based health programs, CIS is completely focused upon mental and behavioral health. These 15 schools do not otherwise have the resources to provide this critical support to students in need, which is more urgent than ever before, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic’s numerous impacts. Northside provides NYC’s (predominantly Black and Latinx) youth and families who are at high risk for mental health issues with much-needed psychological, behavioral, social work, and educational resources to better support these youths from birth through high school, and beyond.
