PREVENTION

Education and Support for Parents

Successful prevention strategies help prevent child abuse and neglect, instill protective factors, teach parenting skills and link families with resources to support their economic self-sufficiency.

We build healthy families by:

  • Promoting positive parenting practices through parent enrichment classes that cover current topics related to caring for children, from infants to teenagers.
  • Educating parents about the principles of early childhood development – through home based instruction and in-home nursing visits for parents of newborns, in order to boost child health and school readiness.
