massachusetts family centers - a place for family support

[text on screen] Lisa and Carlos became part of a Family Center two years ago

Lisa Hamel

We have 7 kids between the two of us.
We don’t have all the answers, like very child is different so what we experienced with one we might not experience with another.
So it’s always nice to have somebody we can look to and ask questions to get different suggestions and ideas.

 

Carlos Castillo

Because no kid comes with a manual.

Carlos Castillo

With the tools, we pick up the phone many times and whoever picks up is awesome with helping us find a way even small ideas and how to deal with them.
I will continue to go because there is always something to learn, there’s always someone you can help, someone that can help you.

 

Lisa Hamel

I think it’s important to be actively involved in the community and try to help other families who are going through similar situations.
Being with other people in the community who are going through the same thing that we were going through.

 

Carlos Castillo

Yeah, that definitely made a difference; knowing that you are not alone.
