The Family Trauma Intervention Program is a therapeutic, home-based program that serves children and families impacted by trauma, domestic violence, and grief-related issues such as child fatalities, community violence, and other traumatic incidents. Intensive, ongoing individual and/or family counseling is provided for children and the non-offending parent, depending on the family’s needs. Additionally, clients with case management needs are linked with appropriate community resources to ensure that their concrete needs are met. Our team consists of Master’s level clinicians and experienced case managers who partner with families to promote healing.
Teenage Parent Support Services (TAPSS) provides home-based, comprehensive and intensive supportive counseling and case management for any young parent (male or female, individually and as couples) who resides in Monroe County, is pregnant or parenting, and is under 22 years old. The services are highly individualized and provided in a relationship-based, trauma-informed and culturally responsive manner that highlights a partnership between the staff and the teen parent (s). Weekly support groups and periodic special group events including zoo trips, college tours, picnics, and holiday celebrations are an optional component.
Families referred to the Supervised Visitation and Exchange Program (SVP) are offered weekly supportive, child-focused visits in a friendly, homelike environment, which balances the need for safety and security with the need for quality time between parents and their children. We provide three different methods of visit supervision, which include, continuous monitoring in room, continuous monitoring outside of the room and intermittent monitoring.
Our Therapeutic Visitation Program (TVP) clinically and relationally works with and on behalf of children ages 0-18 and their families in need of supervised visitation. Therapeutic intervention is offered in a balanced, trauma-informed, culturally and developmentally sensitive and foundationally child-centered way. In our expertise, we lead with wonder and curiosity while pulling from theoretical foundations of attachment, psychodynamic and family systems theories. We work to promote deep healing, growth and overall child well-being within children’s close relationships and systems throughout caregiving transitions and permanency. We fundamentally believe that children require relationships with emotionally available permanent caregivers to be given the best opportunity for healthy and bright futures.
SPCC’s WIC program (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children) serves over 5,000 women, infants and children throughout Ontario, Wayne, Yates, Seneca and Eastern Monroe counties.

Participants receive vouchers for healthy foods such as milk, cheese, eggs, whole grain bread/pasta/tortillas, cereal, peanut butter, dried or canned beans/peas, baby foods, fruits, vegetables and more. WIC also provides infant formula for those babies who are not breastfed. During the summer, families enrolled in WIC are eligible to receive $24 worth of Farmer’s Market Checks. These checks may be used to purchase locally grown produce at participating farmers’ markets.
Through our commitment to contract integrity and vendor support, the VMA ensures participant access to nutritious foods.
