This strength based program works one-on-one with parents to improve parenting skills, develop connections in the community and create a safe, nurturing home environment. The end result is an empowered parent with the skills and resources needed to independently handle the challenges of raising children.
Our Family Support Specialists work with the family and all systems to meet immediate needs. Short and long term goals are created along with an achievable action plan. Meetings are held either in-home or in a community based setting at a convenient time for the family to increase family participation and enhance progress.
The Parent Support Program is for any family member in a parenting role.
Our Family Support Specialists meet with each family 2-3 times per week depending on the needs of the family. We coordinate all meetings and communication with all systems involved throughout the program. A Support Specialist is available for assistance and guidance at all times. The average length of the program is at least 12 but no more than 36 weeks.
The primary goal of the Parent Support Program is to empower parents with the skills and resources needed to independently address the various challenges of raising children.
