Family Supports


Priority: Families effectively fulfill their roles as their children's primary providers.

To achieve this, we award grants to the following programs and services:

Teens as Parents: Life Care Pregnancy Center offers family education and support to pregnant and parenting teens in area high schools. The purpose of this program is to improve parenting skills/confidence and encourage healthy outcomes for infants born to teenage parents.

Reach Out and Read: Partners for Children & Families trains and supports local doctors to give new books to young children during well-child exams and advise parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Encouraging Early Literacy: Partners for Children & Families trains and supports providers in local agencies to give new books to young children during home visits, screenings, and parent meetings and advise parents about the importance of reading aloud at home.
