Our Family

This program provides services to families living in Schoharie, Otsego, Herkimer or Oneida counties who have adopted or have guardianship of a child. Funded through the NYS Office of Children and Family Services, Our Family will work with your family to find the resources you need.

How We Help

  • A care manager will meet with you in your home - you do not have to come to an office. They will work with your family to identify any needs and link you to resources in the community.
  • Support groups are hosted two times a month; there is an active Facebook Group just for Our Family families.
  • Family fun days are planned at least four times a year at no cost to the families.
  • These services are grant funded so there is no charge to the families. This allows program staff to able to be in the home even though there may be other service providers working with the family.

Family Testimonial

In Chuck’s words:

“The Neighborhood Center has been an enormous help to my son and myself. They have been there for us when times were at their bleakest and Marla Getman and Tina Tschaar are some of the very best. They have been there with an open heart and helping hands.”
