November 26, 2006The Nurturing Families Network program at the Community Health Center in Meriden provides services for first time mothers that reside in Meriden and Wallingford area. We are currently serving 60 families with in our community. Nurturing Families Network Home visitation- is a FREE, voluntary family support program designed to ease the transition through parenthood. A "first time parent" home visitation program providing education and support where Family Support Workers provide education and support directly to the family in their home. In addition monthly family activities, in-services and playgroups are provided. Services begin during a mother's pregnancy and continue until their child reaches the age of five. Our goal is to make them self sufficient. We help them with goals and give them the resources to make their goals as a family or as an individual themselves. During the many years I have seen many families reach theirs goals, accomplish everything that they needed to become self-sufficient.
We are in the process of planning our Holiday Christmas Event. We are looking for donation items for our program. We are in need of boys and girls pajamas, T-shirts, socks, slippers and jogging pants or shirts. The sizes ranging from 8T - newborn.
