The Family Support Services workers provide essential emergency and ongoing supports to help families living in poverty meet their daily basic needs, improve their quality of life, and provide their children with a brighter future within an outreach/home visitation support model. Supports can include advocacy, referrals, and enhancing the capacity of families to care for their children.

To enhance resiliency and social supports in families and community, we offer:

  • Health-for-Two  (prenatal care)
  • Goal setting
  • Advocacy services and referral information

Family Support Services staff delivering these services work closely with Early Childhood Development Program staff to support families. Often families are able to receive diapers, formula, and baby layettes when they are in financial crisis or distress.

“I feel I am not alone anymore, and I thought I would not make it after I left my partner, but here I am doing well with the support I got from the Health-for-Two worker.”
