Strong Families, Safe Kids

Solid Starts

An education, support and mentoring program for families during pregnancy & through age 3.

Our Solid Starts program assists families who are facing any number of challenges including: isolation from community, economic struggles, mental health issues, a history of child abuse or domestic violence, or those in need of extra support and parenting information.

Parents are empowered with new skills and resources as they bring a child into the community. Past participants co-lead the group as mentors, and one group includes families from our growing Hispanic community and  is conducted by a native Spanish speaker.

Contact the Family Enhancement Center for more information about The Solid Starts Program.
