Family Support Programming
Family Support programs are based on the philosophy that the most effective way to ensure the healthy development and growth of small children is by supporting the families and communities in which they live. They are designed to increase the strength and stability of families, to increase parents' confidence and competence in their parenting abilities.
Family Support programs not only represent a place where parents can come together to share, support each other, or learn about and benefit from their community's resources but they also represent a community process - anew way of doing business. All segments of the community come together as partners and begin the process of identifying and achieving mutual goals and objectives.
