A Place of Hope to Nurture Families With Young Children (0 - 3 years old)
El Nido is an exciting new faith-based program of Christ Church designed to support parents with 0-3 year old children in the Washington Heights/Inwood area of Manhattan. El Nido has a three part approach:
Provide strong, personal support for families living at or below the federal poverty line. For clients enrolled in the program, El Nido provides weekly or monthly one-on-one visits with our social worker for the parent(s) and child in regard to developmental milestones, both physical and mental, health, safety, discipline, etc. There is a strong focus on literacy and parent/child interaction;
Foster new community connections and networks;
Provide financial assistance. For example, our families receive 40 books a year to build their home library. We also provide winter coats, pajamas, blankets, diapers, formula, and clothing to our families.
