The Division of Child and Family Services refers families to receive in-home parenting education and hands on instruction to prevent and alleviate the risks of child abuse and neglect, strengthen the family unit, and increase life skills.
This unique program is effective because it allows the peer parents to work intensively with each family in their homes. We really gain an understanding of each family’s different dynamics. After a new parenting skill is taught and discussed; home practice exercises are assigned so that we can really determine what is working and needs further improvement.
"Thank you so much for teaching my dad. He doesn't scream at me anymore. He tells me he loves me now. Thank you so much."
