What Services Are Available To My Family?

Assistance with Basic Needs

We recognize that it can be difficult to provide your child with health care, warm clothes, and more. We will help connect you to services and resources in your community that will improve your child’s health, feeding, developmental, and educational needs.


Your child deserves to have a joyful and engaging life, and that starts with their childcare. At a high-quality childcare facility, your child can improve language skills, learn how to play with other children and learn how to solve problems. These are the foundations for your child’s education and future growth. We’ll help you find the perfect fit for you and your child.

Child Development

Your child’s physical, emotional, educational, and social development milestones should be met in encouraging environments. If your child needs assistance in any of these areas, we can help you find a support network and professionals in your community.

Preschool and Kindergarten

Early education gives your child the foundation to develop social-emotional skills that support their ability to continuously engage in learning environments, manage their behaviors, and connect well with others. We can help you find qualified early education facilities in your community.

Home Visiting

New parents often need assistance preparing for the birth of their child and caring for them after they’ve arrived. From your child’s birth until age five, we can help you access medical, social, educational, and other parenting resources to build a strong support network for yourself and your child.

Health and Wellness

You and your child’s wellness matter because everything you do and every emotion you feel is connected to your overall well-being. When the emotional, physical, and mental needs of you and your child are being met, you can focus on growing and thriving in other ways. We’ll help you find resources that can keep your family healthy.

Mental Health and Stress Management

Raising a child takes an emotional toll, and stress affects your whole family. We can help connect you to local resources and support to help you learn how to manage stress and improve the mental health of you and your child.

What Are Developmental Milestones for My Child?

Children grow quickly and their development is sometimes hard to track. Milestones are different for every age, and understanding where your child is developmentally can help you engage and challenge them and recognize when something might be wrong.

Download a free milestone tracker app to keep track of every stage of your child's development.
