Families need and deserve support through the ups and downs of raising children.
Family Centers are community hubs where parents go to get support navigating the joys and challenges of parenting. They can tap into community resources, learn new parenting skills, get individualized family support during times of stress, meet other families, and participate in activities and programs that support them in their caregiving role.
The Centers’ environments are welcoming, accessible, and reflective of the values and beliefs of all families. Staff people are culturally competent and reflect the cultural, linguistic, racial, and ethnic diversity of the population.
Our six Family Centers serve over 12,000 parents, caregivers, and children in over 30 communities.
Wenonah and her husband, Dan, were eager to adopt another child to add to their busy family of four. When they learned the baby girl they wanted to adopt from foster care had a baby sister on the way, they immediately decided to adopt both girls.
