October 2017, Praxis opened Broadway Family Residence, its first DHS shelter for families with children.
The program houses 83 families with priority offered to those who have roots in Bronx Community Board 8 and surrounding communities in the Bronx.
Praxis staff provides an array of on-site services and have established community based linkages to help families stabilize their lives and ultimately return to independent living. On-site services include case management, housing placement assistance, programming for children, recreation space, health/mental health services, screening/assessment/interventions for substance use disorders, and employment counseling. Off-site service linkages include primary healthcare, vocational training, employment placement, GED instruction, conflict mediation, and legal services.
