Our Healthy Families program is designed to strengthen families beginning prenatally up to the age of 5 years of a child’s life, when vital early brain development occurs. Well trained and experienced Family Support Specialists provide quality, intensive home visitation services that include valuable education, community resources and tangible support. Services provide all that families need in order to strengthen parent-child relationships so that their children thrive. Healthy Families uses an evidence based curriculum, Growing Great Kids®
supports grandparents, legal guardians, or kinship placements to ensure they have the tools they need to have safe and nurturing homes for their children. An intensive home visitation service is available for families in need of extra help. All families benefit from programs that increase their competence in promoting healthy development and managing behavior or developmental issues that may arise from adverse childhood experiences of the child(ren) they are now raising. Grandparent Connection uses an evidence based curriculum, Triple P® and also offers monthly support groups, mental health consultations, tutoring, community referrals and summer programs for children.
