Parent Empowerment Programs
Our In-Home Parent Empowerment Programs deliver critically-needed, life-altering parenting strategies and education to struggling families in their own homes. At the heart of these programs, which can last up to 12 months, is intensive, one-on-one educational sessions designed to interrupt the cycle of abuse and keep families together.
- Infant Home Visitation serves high risk families, with an infant up to 17 months old that could benefit from a program that includes parent education and linkages to community resources.
