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.
