None of us can do it alone, together we are stronger!
Life continues to become more complicated for families trying to balance many competing priorities and navigating local support often can be just as difficult. Our goal is reduce barriers and increase access to local opportunities and resources, as well as support events and gatherings that promote connections.
Community Triage Services
Linkages and resources to support families in need
- Strengthening Ties and Empowering Parents (STEPS) – A coalition of strategic community resources gathers for a family in need of support and coordination
- Family Assessment Support Team (FAST) – A clinically focused team of resource providers partner with a family in crisis to find the best avenues of support
Referrals currently only considered for families with a minor child referred from Washington County Child Protective Services, Bester Elementary School or an in-network house of faith leader. For more information on a STEPS referral, call us at our Mill Street office at 240-513-6370.
A local trained facilitator provides ongoing structured small group conversations that bring parents together to talk about issues important to them. The goal is to directly engage parents in building the protective factors needed to prevent maltreatment and promote healthy outcomes for their children.
We host a variety of gatherings throughout the year that supports the goal of connecting families and neighbors to each other for mutual support and peer to peer learning. Family gatherings, celebrations and special programs at the school as well as smaller group meetings with specific focused topics.
