Our mission reflects our passion. To Shape A Community In Which All Children Can Reach Their Full Potential.
Over the last thirty years, Family Futures has helped thousands of families. We know by strengthening parents, we strengthen the entire family. Parenting strength and confidence grows through programs like Connections which helps families recognize and support appropriate developmental milestones for their child, while learning how to play, interact and nurture the parent/child bond. If developmental challenges are identified, access to additional resources is readily available.
If a family experiences challenges that represent higher risk for their children, our Healthy Start program provides personal, in home coaching and education ensuring that children are provided for in healthy and safe home environments.
Family Futures knows that abuse in relationships can be a vicious cycle, a cycle which must be broken. Relationships can begin early in life and with RAVE (Resources Against Violent Encounters) we work directly with middle and high school aged youth in developing an understanding of healthy and unhealthy relationships. Pre-teen and teenage kids are able to develop awareness and sensitivity to the impact of both and build their confidence to navigate effectively in life.
Our programs and services continue to evolve in serving the needs of parents and children. While we focus on prevention, we are broadening our scope to include the impact trauma and toxic stress have on the lives of children and families throughout our community. As we move forward, we will be fully engaged in integrating a trauma informed approach in all our programs, providing social-emotional screening for children served through our programs and in building resiliency while supporting those affected.
