Family Wellness

Our Family Wellness Program connects low-income, immigrant and recently arrived children and families to vital services and local resources, while fostering self-sufficiency and social integration.

Building individual and community resilience by increasing access to needed social services, fostering self-sufficiency and social integration

We respond to the needs of families facing multiple barriers or in crisis as a result of migratory status, poverty, social isolation, violence, and other social and health disparities. The program emphasizes participant-centered, strength-based, and culturally affirming approaches to support the families we partner with.

Family Wellness Program staff guide participants through crisis management, make referrals, advocate on their behalf and provide emotional supports that helps families advance on their path towards self-sufficiency and social integration.

We work closely with partner agencies to connect families to health services and academic support, job training and employment programs, food pantries, shelter and rental subsidies, arts and cultural activities among other critical resources.
