85% of a child’s brain development occurs before they are five.
Yet children born into poverty often do not have access to the physical, emotional, or cognitive support they need to grow up and lead healthy, happy, productive lives.
We support parents caught in an inter-generational cycle of poverty. Our programs promote healthy development, and school readiness for children. We help parents provide consistent nurturing to their children and build supportive connections in their communities.
Our Programs & Services:
Parent-Child Therapeutic Services works to reduce the effects of domestic violence on children by strengthening the parent-child relationship.

Healthy Families consists of home visits to families with newborns. We provide information, screenings, and resources on child development and infant care.
Parent-Child Development Services provides fun, interactive classes for parents and children aged three to five. Parents learn about topics such as child development and positive parenting skills.
