HOW CHILD SUPPORT SERVICES CAN HELP
Many struggling parents are reluctant to seek help. Understanding that you may need support in the midst of excruciating social and financial experiences is the best choice you can make for you and your children.
Single and struggling mothers
Parents living below the federal poverty level
Parents who are struggling with substance abuse
Children with learning disabilities
Children with developmental delays
Children with behavioral problems
Children and parents with mental disorders
HOW WE ASSIST PARENTS AND CHILDREN IN OVERCOMING SUCH BARRIERS
Our staff members provide socioemotional support and understanding to single mothers who are struggling to make ends meet. Through our Community & Youth Support Program, our agency offers therapeutic services which facilitate behavioral and financial change. Our childcare center provides a platform for low-income parents and children to discuss and talk about healthier ways of resolving personal problems, while also providing them with the therapeutic tools necessary to develop more positive thinking patterns. This process can be focused on specific issues (e.g., financial struggles and substance abuse) or broader patterns of thinking and behavioral problems.
