About the Child Development Support Corporation (CDSC)

We are a community-based, not-for-profit organization incorporated in 1975.  CDSC began as a self-help group headed by parents to provide child care for families in the Fort Greene and Bedford-Stuyvesant sections of Brooklyn, New York.  From our modest beginnings of providing the single service of on-site childcare, we have evolved into a multi-service organization that provides a wide range of services to children, youth, and families.  

Since our beginning, CDSC has helped more than 20,000 families and individuals to become self-sufficient and self-reliant.  We are motivated by the belief that vibrant, healthy communities start with strong, secure families.

Our unique ability to recognize and adapt to changing community circumstances and needs enables us to continually provide proactive, responsive, relevant, and quality programs and services to our clients.

Accomplishments

  • Our Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) program helps over 6,000 families annually to access child care information and resources, and connect them to subsidy funding to pay for their child care needs. In 2006, we received a Best Practices certification for demonstrating our competence in the field of Child Care Resource and Referral. 
  • We help more than 3,000 individuals annually to become self-employed by establishing home-based early childhood programs through training, technical assistance and resources.
  • Through our partnership with the Brooklyn Outreach Center (BOC), we assist low-income child care providers to become successful entrepreneurs by providing intensive business, legal, child care skill and accounting assistance

Our Mission

The mission of CDSC is to provide programs that empower families by helping them to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for successful living in today’s society.

CDSC carries out this mission by:

  • Developing a community action plan that is based upon strategic planning;
  • Coordinating and collaborating with other community-based efforts to develop partnerships, maximize resources, and enhance existing service delivery systems;
  • Identifying service gaps;
  • Advocating for the needs of families, youth, individuals, and low income persons;
  • Developing services that are relevant and needed;
  • Leveraging funds for needed community services;
  • Encouraging services that are accessible, culturally sensitive, family-friendly, and responsive.

Vision

CDSC’s staff recognizes that a thriving community is measured by how well it takes care of its members, especially its most vulnerable.  Together with policy makers, community members and partnerships with broad low-income representation, we ensure comprehensive support service delivery systems that promote self-sufficiency, pride and community spirit for the people in Central Brooklyn.

We pride ourselves in offering relevant quality services to the community in a caring and respectful manner.  In order to maintain high standards of service, we internally practice the values that we seek to foster in the community.  Those values include quality work, honesty, and mutual respect, along with teamwork and creativity in problem solving.

About CLR Trust: 

At CLR Trust our mission is to have you experience life, not just go through the motions; for you to see the beauty in yourself and the world around you; to have fruitful and fulfilled relationships.

What if we, all people, were put on this earth for more than just go to school, get a job, pay taxes, then die?

We all have a purpose in life but it may not always be clear as to what our purpose is. We get caught up in the demand of our daily lives and the need to work for money.

At CLR Trust we show you how to achieve true happiness by living out your life’s purpose.Coaching Services

My coaching programs are tailored specifically to you. I cater to your goals, your wants and your needs. Together  through our strategy sessions we will design an outline to enable you to achieve your goals. We begin by writing out the goal(s) and work backwards breaking the goal down in monthly tasks then weekly targets. You will feel confident in your ability to begin working towards making your goals a reality.

We then work together, one on one, for 12 or more  weeks. We will meet weekly and speak periodically throughout the week to ensure you stay on task. During this time you will gain the confidence and tools needed to become who God created you to be. 

Lifestyle Transformation
$3,000+

Action springs from what we fundamentally desire. The first step is always the hardest, which is why working with a coach is beneficial in achieving your goals. I will assist you in unfolding your current lifestyle.  Together we comb through three important areas of your life: your Mind, Body and Soul, or as I like to call them your Life, Liberty and Happiness. These areas of your life determine who you are, how you act and how you react to life. We focus on making changes to these three areas by implementing small and impactful changes to your current lifestyle. We break them down into weekly tasks making your life’s purpose more obtainable and achievable. By setting weekly tasks, we make the transition from your current lifestyle to your new profound lifestyle less intimidating and more realistic. You will have a clear vision of how to achieve your life’s purpose and become who God created you to be.

Holistic Healing
$1,500+

When God created the earth, He ensured the earth would provide for every creature, especially Humans. My Holistic Health Coaching Service assists you in achieving your health goals. Whether it be to maintain a healthy lifestyle or target a current ailment.  I provide you with healthy, natural and holistic alternatives. Together we work toward improving the quality and longevity of your life. Making health conscience changes to your lifestyle and diet will not only improve your health but give you the energy and drive to achieve you life’s purpose and become who God created you to be.

Things You Can Do to Decrease Your Cancer Risk

 Get screened. Older age increases the risk of developing cancer. Start getting screened at the recommended age and spread the word.

 

Know your family history. Both colorectal and breast cancer can be genetic and can run in families. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any family members who have had breast or colorectal cancer because this may change your screening recommendation.

 

Change your diet. Eating red meat (eg, ground beef, lamb, or processed meats) has been linked to colorectal cancer. Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat. Decreasing alcohol intake can decrease your risk for breast cancer.

 

Stop smoking. Smoking raises your risk for every kind of cancer. Ask your doctor or navigator for resources if you need help quitting.

 

Exercise. People who are overweight are more likely to develop colorectal and breast cancer. Add exercise to our day to reduce your risk.
