Family Enrichment

The Family Enrichment Program supports parents in safely caring for children who have experienced trauma or are diagnosed with a mental health disorder.

The Family Enrichment team of specialists understand that parents, too, have a need for connection, and reliable, nurturing relationships in order to provide the same to their children. Family Enrichment staff focus first, on connecting and role modeling what meaningful relationships look and feel like.

Through use of Trauma Informed Parenting and Present Moment Parenting models, parents not only gain understanding for the reasons behind their child’s needs but, develop a “toolbox” to assist them in supporting their children. Parents also find the support and resources to create positive meaningful relationships with their children.
