Family Engagement events are designed to strengthen resilience by building a community among families with similar experiences. Engagement events help to create positive new traditions, and introduce other Tuesday’s Children programs and services. We have hosted partnered events with many influential organizations over the years, including ice skating events with the New York Islanders, basketball events with the New York Knicks, special event initiatives with the New York Giants and Jets and family baseball events with the New York Mets and Yankees.
We see community outreach and engagement as our biggest success. Tuesday’s Children’s effective model to support a bereaved and traumatized population, brings services directly to families within their social networks, and we can demonstrate our longitudinal success in family engagement and community building. Tuesday’s Children made a long-term commitment to support families at “each stage of life and recovery,” and we have found this family-focused approach is most effective in healing the community.
