Services in Support of the Family provide assistance for poor, isolated and vulnerable families in our community. Families receive a comprehensive assessment of needs, which results in either initial problem-solving for many issues, or a supported referral to connect with other services within the community.
The goals of Services in Support of the Family include:
- Assisting families to develop skills and utilize opportunities to improve their lives.
- Assisting families to establish and/or maintain stable and supportive family environments.
- Providing opportunities for families within neighborhoods and communities to meet and provide mutual support for each other.
- Helping individuals with strong leadership abilities develop skills to benefit their community.
As part of our Services in Support of the family, we offer parenting classes. These classes are offered in a group setting and are lead and facilitated by a clinical professional. The group setting allows parents to share common issues and often creates a support network among participants. If interested, please call our office at 910-424-2020 for dates and times of upcoming classes.
