Families BOND
Families BOND (Building Opportunities, Networks, and Development) provides weekly emails to families with children prenatal to five years old. The emails include information about child development, parent-child interaction activities, community resources, and opportunities to connect with other parents in the community.

Research shows that 90% of brain development happens in the first 5 years of a child’s life. Families BOND is a great way to stay informed and gain tools to promote the healthy development of your growing child.

Parents as Teachers
The Parents as Teachers (PAT) program is an in-home, visit-based program for parents and their children prenatal to kindergarten entry.

Parents as Teachers believes that as the parent, you are your child’s first and most influential teacher! Once enrolled, a parent educator will visit with your family at least once a month.

During home visits, your parent educator will partner with you to determine goals for you and your child, provide developmentally appropriate activities for you to do together, conduct health and developmental screenings, and connect your family to community resources to ensure that by the time your child reaches kindergarten age, they are prepared with the tools and support needed to succeed.
