Power of Two: Trauma Support for Families

Power of Two was created to help families heal from the root causes of trauma, help children thrive, and strengthen community cohesion. At our core, we are a community-based organization that is maximizing the positive effects of responsive parenting and supporting stronger relationships between caregivers and children, shown to have lifelong positive impacts on the health and well-being of children. It sets the foundation from which we engage the wider community in healing. We do all this with a racial and social justice lens, so ensure brighter futures for Black and Brown families in New York City. 

The Bridge Community Foundation

We accept and encourage donations through the Bridge Community Foundation so we can continue to elevate the level of access, funding, education, and resources we provide to communities of color. 

We emphasize community building as an integral part of revolutionizing maternal health.

We strive to build a future where every family, regardless of their background, has equal access to competent care and resources, resulting in improved maternal health outcomes for all.

The Bridge Project

We're giving new mothers across New York City up to $1000 every month for three years, no strings attached. 

Our goal is to simplify the solution and empower families to secure their own futures. We want to provide mothers and babies with the resources to lift themselves out of poverty so the next generation of New Yorkers has a strong foundation to grow, learn, and turn possibility into reality.
