family development

A primary focus of family development is to help parents create a network of support and to help parents provide better lives for their children. This, we believe, will promote healthier families and, in turn, create a healthier neighborhood.

Home Visits: We offer parenting home visits to help families work through issues they face, to set goals, and to provide an environment in which parents can talk about and practice parenting skills. Home Visits utilize the Parents as Teachers Curriculum.

We offer English Language Learners (ELL) and GED/High School Diploma classes, computer classes, and a variety of social skill groups like knitting, fitness and nutrition, and book clubs.

Parent Involvement: We host events that encourage parent involvement and family togetherness. Examples include family fun nights, cookouts and barbeques, holiday parades, and family dinners.
