Supported Parenting Through the Pandemic
Sabrina is a loving mother of two girls. She has challenges of her own and at-home schooling required during the pandemic was especially difficult without the technology needed and internet service. She feared that her girls would fall behind in school and was overwhelmed not knowing how to help. Continuing to provide service during the pandemic, our Supported Parenting Program gave Sabrina the in-person support she needed. Visiting her home multiple times throughout the week, her family support worker helped Sabrina establish a routine for her girls. She also helped Sabrina acquire computers through community partnerships so her girls could participate in school. They continue to meet regularly and work on positive parenting skills. Sabrina has grown in her confidence and ability to care for her daughters.
