We offer a Comprehensive Therapeutic Approach

alt Serving the emotional needs of children, adolescents and their families

Eastchester Family Services (EFS) is a community-based human services organization. Our agency is designed to meet the varying needs of today’s families. We assist youth and adults in resolving conflicts in non-violent, non-threatening ways. Eastchester Family Services' staff is driven by high standards of integrity and dedication, which result in stronger family ties and healthier relationships among consumers.

Assessment

Every referral includes information from parents, children and collaterals. The goal is to determine the nature of the problem and develop an individualized treatment plan based on family needs.
