Supported Parenting Program
The Supported Parenting Program is a family support, home visitation program which promotes positive parenting and healthy interactions between parent and child.
The Catholic Charities’ worker visits the home after the child is born and serves as a resource to the family as they grow through the first year. The worker provides education about child growth and development and offers support and reinforcement for healthy parenting skills. In addition, the worker offers assistance to all members of the family to resolve the tensions and discord which can arise about co-parenting, visitation, discipline, etc.
