The purpose of Family Support is to help educate parents and prevent child abuse. Services include parent education, the respite and crisis nurseries, and therapy.
24-hour Crisis/Respite Nurseries provide free and confidential emergency care day and night for children 0-11 years of age for parents in distress, giving children a safe haven while parents work to create a more stable, healthy home environment.
Family Support Case Management focuses on the prevention of crisis in at-risk families through weekly visits and parent education classes, providing parenting skills, training and literacy enhancement leading to family stability and children’s educational success.
Therapy services provide free counseling treatment to families dealing with domestic violence, child abuse and other traumas to improve mental health, strengthen relationships, enhance functioning, and prevent re-victimization.
