Center for Family Life in Sunset Park


Please follow this link to read the in-depth write up of our Life Lines program, published by Barbara Cervone on What Kids Can Do.org.  Ms. Cervone joined the Life Lines camping retreat and attended the subsequent “Connections” performance- where she spent considerable time interviewing our dedicated staff and participants. Life Lines: Finding Family through Musical Improv in Sunset Park captures Life Lines’ vibrant energy, use of social group work to engage and empower youth, camaraderie, and lasting impact on students.

“When we give students the permission to speak from their own experience instead of someone else’s words to interpret, it shows we trust them” said Julie Stein Brockway. “Improv demands that the students listen closely and support one another, that they take risks.”  “Connections—that’s what this show and Life Lines is all about- It recognizes the deep human need to feel accepted and to belong.”
