Family Centers are safe and supportive spaces for parents to learn about the latest discoveries in child development, nurturing behaviors, and positive parenting practices.

Some classes may be open to a small group at a physical location, only accessible online or not available at this time. Please contact your local Family Center for more information.

Health and Wellness

Staff at the Centers work with parents to make sure their children have health insurance and access to regularly scheduled doctor’s appointments and immunizations. Several centers have nurses on staff. We also support expectant parents with prenatal health services/referrals and information about caring for an infant.

Child Development

Family Centers use an evidence-based home visiting program recognized by the federal government called Parents As Teachers (PAT)*. Through their involvement in PAT, parents work with a parent educator to gain knowledge that will help ensure that their children are growing, learning, and developing. In addition to our home visiting program, all Centers host classes and support groups where parents can share their experiences and learn about healthy child development. All enrolled children under the age of 6 have access to free developmental screenings.

Community Voices

Parent leaders from all the Family Centers come together to discuss issues affecting their children, families, and communities. Collectively, their voices reach policymakers, human services professionals and elected officials to create positive change.
