The Little Engine That Could
The Little Engine That Could was born to increase the self-esteem of low income families in the Harlem area by providing quality short term counseling and psycho-educational interventions. The Little Engine will gear up to assist low income families with children of ages 3-8 years old with a history of trauma, social welfare and emotional difficulties. Our engines are ready to fuel families with self- efficacy education, counseling and interventions that will increase the family’s emotional and social development. Our first proposal is to successfully serve 15 families including parents and children. Gear up and join the cause!!!
