“Kulanu Serves”

KEREN ELIANA PARENT ADVOCACY & RESOURCE CENTER (PARC)

The Keren Eliana Parent Advocacy and Resource Center (PARC) is an integral part of the Kulanu Center for Special Services, located in Cedarhurst, NY.

Created to address the concerns of individuals with special needs, their families and the community, PARC serves as a clearinghouse of information with an up-to-date reference library of booklets and pamphlets on a wide variety of developmental, educational, and family topics. Information and referral services, workshops, technical assistance, and parent training are available to individuals, families and outside agencies.

Our in-house computer database is updated regularly with current information about clinicians, specialists, attorneys, adult services, recreational programs, medical services, and upcoming lectures/trainings that users can personally access at the press of a button.

Kulanu maintains collaborative relationships with many educational, religious and social service organizations, and as such is able to recommend a cadre of personalized services.
