Yonkers, NY

Ascend Network project: ANDRUS, a child- and family-centered social service organization, will develop a tool that uses predictive analytics to help assess a child’s risk for exposure to toxic stress. This tool has the potential to break the intergenerational impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) by enabling ANDRUS - and other service providers - to undertake early involvement, engagement, and intervention with both children and their parents.

Mission: ANDRUS nurtures social and emotional well-being in children and their families by delivering a broad range of vital services and by providing research, training and innovative program models that promote standards of excellence for professional performance in and beyond our service community.
