Community Education and Resiliency Program
Our Community Education and Resiliency Program extends our family preservation programming to parents and guardians in the local community to help them think proactively about their family's stability.
In April 2019, Providence House began expanding the reach of our successful family preservation services to help families in the community before a serious crisis occurs.
Our Community Education and Resiliency Program brings our case management, parent education, and trauma services to families in the community through many child-serving partner organizations. This prevention-based service allows Providence House to connect with families without having to utilize the crisis nursery program for their children. Programming in advance of a crisis allows participants in this program to think proactively about their family, identify any unmet needs, build upon their strengths, and build social connections with others.
If you are interested in learning more about how Providence House can bring our services to your organization, please contact our Community Services Manager, Dani Lachina.
