Preventive Services

Help Children Back Onto The Right Path

The Children’s Village believes that children do best when they can live safely with their families. Such children are more likely to avoid arrest, avoid making harmful life decisions, and be positive influences in their communities.   To ensure that as many families stay together as possible, CV offers two evidence-based preventive services: FFT-CW and MST. Our preventive services are available to families to help them enhance safety and reduce risks.


Functional Family Therapy – Child Welfare (FFT-CW) – Offered in the Bronx and Manhattan, FFT-CW is a family-based prevention program that helps families make positive changes to their households. Learn more about FFT-CW here.  

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) – Offered in the five boroughs, Long Island, Rockland, and Westchester, MST is an evidence-based program that helps families manage out of control children. Learn more about MST here.
