Little Sisters of The Assumption (LSA) Family Health Service in NYC
Our Holistic Service Model
Skilled care delivered at home—combined with center-based support—keeps families together and moving forward.
We provide the interventions and care that vulnerable, at-risk families need over the short term. But we also look beyond their immediate needs to see how they can achieve lasting stability and growth. We do that by building caring, respectful relationships and offering multiple services, which over time will boost family health and well-being.
Our model offers a special focus on:
- Parenting and early childhood development and health
- Nursing care for mothers, infants and young children
- Family health issues, like asthma, diabetes, depression and abuse
- Advocacy for families needing assistance with housing, food, legal aid—or any short-term crisis.
Helping Families Rise
Life was hard where we came from, but life is hard too in East Harlem and here we are alone. We have hope for a better life but we don't have anyone to help us. When we came to LSA that is when things changed for us. [husband and dad expecting his second child]
