C.A.R.E Program at DCS

The purpose of this program is to address sexual victimization affecting men, women, LGBTQ, Immigrants, and the homeless in North and Central Brooklyn. We strive to build a stronger supportive caring community within the Brooklyn area through a client-centered, culturally sensitive program. We focus on exploring an individual’s self-power while providing counseling through crisis intervention efforts, advocacy, referrals, and cognitive-behavioral education.
