Family and Community Partnerships

Strong children come from strong families and strong families come from and help build strong communities. The notion of Family and Community Partnerships comes from the philosophy that working not only with children and families but also with community service providers, increases family well-being.

Our program strives to establish a strong partnership with each family to maximize the value of the program to both their child and the family as a whole. An important step in this process is the completion of a Family Partnership Agreement with the assigned Family Advocate.  This document helps identify any needs a  family may have, and establishes goals for having those needs met. Program families and C.H.I.L.D., Inc. staff work together or “partner” on things related to securing basic needs, finding professional services such as a dentist or doctor, and helping parents return to the work force. This document also helps us know a family’s interests and allows us to plan workshops, groups, and other activities.
