Children, Teens and Families Program (CTF)
Cancer affects the entire family. Gilda’s Club Westchester offers the area’s only ongoing support for children and teens who are living a life affected by cancer – their own diagnosis, that of loved one, or the loss of a loved one- through age-appropriate support groups, individual counseling sessions, social events, camps and workshops. The Children, Teens and Families Program (CTF) is designed to be a place for children and teens to learn, have fun, care and share, while being supported by our professional staff and trained volunteers.
Here are the easy steps to get your family involved at Gilda’s Club Westchester
Adults from the family create a profile and sign up to attend a New Member Meeting
Following the New Member Meeting, parents/guardians sign up for a Support Planning Meeting- Children & Teens with our Children, Teens and Families Manager. Support Planning Meetings are an opportunity to connect one-on-one with a licensed professional, explore which parts of our program are ideal for you and your family, and learn about additional resources. Completing a Support Planning Meeting is required before participating in counseling or support groups.
