What Is Cap4Kids?

Are you looking for reliable, updated information about resources in the New York City area for children and families? You’ve come to the right place! Cap4Kids will help you find many community agencies that exist to improve or enhance the lives of children, teens, and families.

How Does Cap4Kids Work?

Please become familiar with the Parent Handouts to the left. They are the backbone of this project. They are broken down by category and within each handout, you will find a description of the social service agency, their address, and a phone number. You may also find a link to the agency’s web site that you can access and learn more about that agency.

You can also easily print any parent handout by clicking on the handout, or subcategory, and choosing print from your web browser. You can also print a single resource by clicking on it. Your selected parent handout will be sent to your printer in a custom printer friendly format.  Click print, then pdf.

For Health Care Professionals

Download the parent handouts and give them to the families that you have identified that are in need of a particular service. After you distribute the handout, document which handout you gave so that you can get feedback at the next encounter.
