Program Development

Organizing effective programming requires developing intake methods, needs assessments and outreach that build competency in understanding what a service population needs. The next step is facilitating engagement and creating needs based programs that can eventually expand to new populations.

The foundations of Tuesday's Children's initial programming rested on three pillars:

PILLAR 1

Family Engagement

PILLAR 2

Wellness, Life Management & Skills Development

PILLAR 3

Mental Health and Counseling

As time went on, Tuesday's Children eventually diversified its programming to incorporate different service populations and an expanded set of needs:
Tuesday's Children has undergone three major expansions since its founding in 2001:
9/11 FAMILIES
  • We serve Individuals who lost a loved one on 9/11, particularly youth ages 0-18 who lost a parent.
9/11 RESPONDERS
  • We support 9/11 responders and their families. This doubled our organization's service population over two years.
INTERNATIONAL YOUTH
  • Project COMMON BOND has served 550+ youth from 25 countries impacted by terrorism.
FAMILIES IMPACTED BY MASS SHOOTINGS AT DOMESTIC TERRORISM
  • Resiliency Center of Newtown has served 2,000 people using our Long-Term Healing Model.

Engagement & Outreach
