Building Healthy Children
Building Healthy Children is a collaborative of Mt. Hope Family Center and Strong Social Work Division.
The program provides and evaluates preventive interventions for teen families and their children. Building Healthy Children supplies young mothers with parenting education, parent-children trauma and maternal depression therapy, and any needed support services such as food, housing and transportation. Program goals include decreasing the number of families involved with Child Protective Services, promoting positive parent-child relationships and healthy child development outcomes, including being up-to-date on immunizations and well-child medical appointments.
