The Family Place Parent Child Center
The Family Place supports the positive growth and development of all parents by offering services that encourage families to build upon their strengths. While we provide services to any family with young children, our particular expertise is in serving those families most in need. We help not only the current generation of young families and children, but foster parenting skills that will positively impact generations to come. We have a strong track record of success and are well known for our expertise in parenting.
Increased need for services in the UpperValley has necessitated expansion at The Family Place - in programs, staff size, and buildings - to meet the volume of those needs. These expansions have allowed us to deliver programs to those in a welcoming and functional parent child center, which will lead to better outcomes for UpperValley families and children. We, and all of our supporters, are building a better future for these families.
The Family Place offers programs and services for young children, including child care payment assistance, Home Visiting programs, Playgroups, Family Fun Events, Parent Education, Holiday Assistance for individuals in need, Child Advocacy and therapy, information and referral services, a lending library, and a wonderful on-site program to assist young mothers with parenting skills, knowledge of child development, job readiness and life skills.
Many people also took advantage of our special events, lending library, website and referral services. For more information on programs and activities, please view our website at www.familyplacevt.org.
