Strengthening Families and Building Community
Family Nurturing Center offers a low-cost and powerful interruption of this cycle by building networks of support around families. From welcoming a new baby into the home to intensive Nurturing Parenting programs that bring families together to learn, Family Nurturing Center helps parents feel supported and be connected instead of isolated.
Our programs nourish both parents and children. We build community by connecting families with each other for mutual support. Our multi-disciplinary, multi-lingual staff also trains others across the Commonwealth to build these programs.
"Now my girls and I have such a relationship that no breeze can come between us."
—Sherrill, Nurturing Parenting Program graduate
Theory of Change
When families receive support in the form of home visits, parent-child playgroups, and Nurturing Programs,
they build community, understand child development, appreciate the importance of early literacy, and parent in a more nurturing manner.
Then parents have the skills and supportive community they need to raise healthy children who enter school
ready to learn.
