Ms. Enriquez (parent in yellow blouse) is a CCFY parent with a child in the juvenile justice system. However, as this video demonstrates, she is also the proud parent of a college student who received a four-year scholarship to Columbia University. CCFY seeks to remove the stigma attached to parents who have system-involved youth. Most are hard working, devoted parents who deserve to be honored and supported.
CCFY offers parents of system-involved youth support through their Family Strengthening Programs. We offer two evidence-based curriculums for strengthening family relationships, parenting workshops, parent advocacy training, and the Parent Peer Support Program, a program where parents with system-involved youth are provided with “peer coaches” to guide them through the juvenile justice system. For more information call CCFY’s Director of Family Engagement, Ms. Jeanette Bocanegra at 347-590-0940.
