Family support staff connect parents to resources in areas of health, parenting, job training, educational goals, and domestic and community violence. We are dedicated to developing the integrity of families within the context of their beliefs, values, customs, and culture. By providing family support services to each family, we increase the likelihood of personal success and self sufficiency not only for the child, but also for the entire family. We help families help themselves by providing:

  • a place where families and community can come together in a safe environment for growing, learning, and connecting

  • a program that connects families to community resources, support, and opportunities

  • a philosophy of respecting and honoring family assets

We believe that strong reading skills create the foundation for all future learning experiences. In our classrooms, every learning activity encompasses a component of literacy and language development. In addition, we encourage parents to read with their children at home through our Raising A Reader program. Our Raising A Reader program helps parents in practicing and maintaining home-based literacy routines that are critical for school success. Research demonstrates that when families are involved in learning, children’s academic achievement improves.
