This website is a product of a collaborative effort among, and was created by, Community Pediatrics of Columbia University Medical Center Department of Pediatrics / New York-Presbyterian Ambulatory Care Network, The Volunteers of Legal Service (VOLS) Children's Project and White & Case LLP, and powered by Pro Bono Net, to assist advocates who provide services to children and families in need of social and health services. This database was developed for healthcare providers but may be used by other advocates and providers of social services. Select a topic to find suggested resources, or see below for tips on how to use this website.
- The resources in each category are listed alphabetically.
- Listings include city, state and federal government programs and services, city-wide and community-based organizations and hotlines. However, the database is not intended as a complete listing of social and health agencies in New York City. If you are searching for an appropriate service, you may want to consider beginning with a citywide service.
- Eligibility requirements with regard to income, residence or special needs are subject to change and must be checked.
- Inclusion in this database does not imply endorsement nor does omission imply disapproval.
- The original advocacy code card concept was developed by the Family Advocacy Program, Boston Medical Center.
