The mission of Chances for Children (CFC) is to strengthen relationships between at-risk parents and their children, from birth to age five. We want to provide coping skills for parents and to prevent destructive interactions from interfering with the healthy development of both parent and child.

Crisis Respite Center NYC

Crisis Respite Center NYC:
An RMHA Program

A ten bed Crisis Respite Center opened on September 25, 2013 at the Joyce M. Pilsner Residence.

RMHA has been designated by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to be the Bronx provider of these specialized services. The Crisis Respite Center staff, peer specialists who have the lived experience of mental illness, are further equipped by training to provide a sense of support and hope to guests. The CRC is funded entirely by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.


The Crisis Respite Center NYC is a new and innovative citywide approach to providing community-based services to individuals aged 18-65 who are experiencing psychiatric crisis. CRC NYC provides a “soft landing” as an entry point to the mental health system by enhancing four existing mobile crisis teams to provide immediate and ongoing treatment, creating four new Crisis Respite Centers as a short-term alternative to hospitalization and creating a Peer operated Support Line.

Riverdale Mental Health Association operates the Bronx Crisis Respite Center as part of the – now ended- Parachute NYC project. The Bronx CRC is a safe, home-like setting where people experiencing psychiatric crisis can stay as an alternative to hospitalization. It is a warm, friendly and supportive environment where guests are taught to use new recovery and relapse prevention skills. Peer counselors also serve as warm line operators.
