FOR PARENTS We have a service called the New Parent Support Program that provides a lot of help to new or expecting parents that includes free nurse home visits, great play times and workshops for Families.

 

FOR SINGLE PARENTS  Are you a single parent?  Feeling tired, overwhelmed and a bit underappreciated?  Join us for our new Single Parent Group and explore ideas for making your way in the world as a single parent.  This combination educational/support group will provide insight on parenting that works and help you develop ways to handle the challenges of being a single parent. Come to receive or offer support, share tips to improve parenting wisdom or simply to connect and build meaningful friendships with other single parents.  The better you feel about yourself as a person, the better you’ll feel as a single parent.  All SINGLE parents are welcome!.

FOR VICTIMS OF PARTNER ABUSE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT We offer 24 hour/7 help to victims through our Victim Advocate Program, and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program.

 

GREAT CLASSES! We have over 20 workshops on many topics including self defense, marriage, parenting and divorce (Free childcare for parents to attend): 

Services Provided: Assistance is available if you or someone you know is experiencing violence in the home (child or spouse abuse). The FAP Coordinator provides information and assistance in reporting cases of abuse and making referrals for those in need of emergency shelter, medical assistance, and /or counseling.

 

Identification: To identify Soldiers and family members who are involved in child abuse or neglect and/or spouse abuse.

 

Prevention: To encourage self-referral as the primary way a family gets the help it needs. The program’s emphasis is on strengthening families and keeping them together, rather than on punishment. Family members are encouraged to seek help when they recognize warning signs that indicate they may be mistreating their children or failing to communicate effectively with their spouses.  View Prevention/Outreach Program Brochure

 

Education: To encourage all people to be alert and to report a situation dangerous or harmful to a child, and to educate community members on reporting suspected child maltreatment and spouse abuse.

 

Classes: Parenting (all ages), Stress Management, Anger Management, Couples Communication, Life Choices for Teens, Co-Parenting Children of Divorce and Custody.

 

Treatment: To provide referrals for individual, martial, & family counseling; including the use of appropriate child management techniques, and how to improve couples communication skills.
