Impoverished and/or homeless parents who are focused on meeting basic needs often have a limited ability to understand, nurture, and support their children’s development, undermining both the development of the children and the stability of the family. Our Parent-Child Services program provides therapeutic services that foster positive attachments between caregivers and their children to improve parenting skills.
Parents who feel successful and strong in their parenting role are better equipped to meet the developmental and emotional needs of their children. As a result, children are more likely to reach developmental milestones and be prepared to succeed in school.
In addition, adults who have developed parenting skills are better able to focus their energy on addressing other significant challenges in their lives, such as housing instability, unemployment or substance abuse.
