Founded in 1953, the Queens Child Guidance Center 's mission is to nurture the emotional well-being of children and families in Queens . Since our inception, we have helped thousands of children and families with the many issues negatively impacting their lives. Four years ago, the New York City Department of Mental Health acknowledged this by selecting the Center to receive its annual agency mental hygiene award, given as a symbol of service excellence and exceptional program performance.
We understand that the needs of children and families are complex and offer a diverse range of services at our 11 therapeutic sites and in 50 public schools. We believe that strong, nurturing relationships are essential to children's positive growth and development. We recognize that family, community, school, culture and the agency itself constitute a dynamic system. With these critical concepts in mind, we aim to positively impact children's relationships within family, school, community, culture and our programs. We serve the most ethnically diverse county in America . That is why we have a bi-lingual and bi-cultural staff who, together, speak 28 languages.
