Family Developmental Support Program
Family Development consultants partner with client families to work on action plans that lead to the overall goal of self-sufficiency. This is a free and voluntary program in which families are encouraged to grow in many areas, depending on the situation of each family. Typical family challenges include issues like: employment, physical family violence/abuse, money management, divorce, childcare, family development, social support, community resources, and more. Linkages with other professionals in the community to build stronger support networks are a priority. No money is paid to the client.
