Building Healthy Families, Strong Foundations, and Refugee Health Connections are our family support programs. These programs are geared toward parents of young children or those who are expecting. In these programs, families meet with a Child Development Specialist or a Community Health Worker on a regular basis, depending on the individual family. Prior to baby’s arrival, focus is on mom’s preparation, health, and education; after baby is born the focus of visits shifts to the child’s development, heath, and well being
Our crisis service programs, Crisis Child Care and Crisis Intervention, work with families who are experiencing a crisis and need immediate assistance by providing families with child care for a set period of time. They also provide families with resources and information to accomplish specific goals.
Our school based programs, Sexual Abuse Prevention and Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, educate adults and students using age-appropriate curriculum in the classroom. These programs teach young students about appropriate touches, body awareness, and self-care; and older students about boundaries and sexual health and safety.
