Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange County NY
Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange County, as one of the human service agencies of Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of New York, is committed to building a compassionate and just society. Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange County serves the homeless, the hungry, the emotionally and physically handicapped, immigrants, the marginalized and vulnerable of Orange County. We collaborate with parishes and non-Catholic and Catholic partners. We help people of all religions who are in need.
Family Empowerment Council (FEC) is a grassroots, family-oriented, person-centered agency made up of parents, consumers, and professionals. We are firmly committed to the belief that every individual should be included in the community to whatever extent he or she chooses. Each person should be informed about the choices available in life and be provided the ways and means to access those choices, thus making decisions at whatever level possible. People with disabilities should be part of the natural system within their own community. Most of FEC’s programs are available to families in Orange and Sullivan Counties of New York State.
The Orange County Department of Mental Health exists to ensure that quality Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Use Disorder services are accessible to all the people of Orange County, that such services are delivered in a cost effective, timely and culturally sensitive manner under the jurisdiction of the Mental Hygiene Law of New York State and provided within the rules, regulations, policies and procedures of the licensing authority of appropriate State Offices.
We assess youth needs by convening community planning groups, identifying problems and strengths and developing coordinated strategies to address them. We promote private and public partnerships in planning, bringing together towns, villages, cities, social agencies and private citizens including youth. We are a partner with the local division system for youth, identified as Persons in Need of Supervision (PINS), and the comprehensive services for runaway and homeless youth. We support the local Balance and Restorative Justice collaboration, Aggression Replacement Training (ART) and Safe School Ambassadors.
