BROOKLYN - A crisis-intervention program has helped more than 100 children resolve issues with their families, and the service is free.

The Brooklyn Child Mobile Crisis Team offers 24-hour service seven days a week. The program is part of the nonprofit Visiting Nurse Service of New York.

Caseworkers go directly to people's homes after a call is made, providing immediate assistance in crisis situations.

"I was grateful because once they came in, they were able to help me and my child get a calmness and to get a better understanding," says Lisa Bodden, a Bedford-Stuyvesant mother.

The program started in the Bronx in 2012 and later spread to Brooklyn and Queens.
