What can I expect from Parent Support Outreach?

This program focuses on a family’s strengths and needs. This program is about working with parents who want to do what’s best for their kids. It’s about connecting with community resources that provide the specific kinds of help families want and need.

Families work with a case manager from a contracted agency to develop a plan to meet their specific goals and needs.

Getting help, even for a short period of time, can make a big difference.
