Our Impact in the Community
Last year, over 550 at-risk children living in high-risk neighborhoods, received prevention and early intervention services through the Center for Child Counseling to ensure that they have the best start in life.
Who is an at-risk child? Young children living in environments characterized by ongoing exposure to violence, abuse, and neglect...these children are at enormous risk for the development of persistent concerns that lead to negative physical and emotional health outcomes later in life. 1 in 4 young children in Palm Beach County live in poverty, a significant risk factor for exposure to an array of adverse experiences that negatively impacts brain development. Early intervention is the key to healthy outcomes.
