“I had not seen my dad in 3 years, I was scared. The Family Room made it safe and comfortable for me to see my dad. We now talk weekly and do not need the Family Room to see one another.” Jessica, 11 years old

Client Impact

"A case I've been able to help with is a parent who was struggling with mental health and substance use. She was able to come in to the office, apply for family support child care and locate a provider through the referral process. Within the first six months of the family receiving help with child care mom was able to get set up with a therapist and a substance abuse counselor. She has maintained attending all of her appointments so that can she work on herself and able to parent to the best of her ability without barriers. This success story is due to the family having high quality child care placement."  - Natashia Brooks, CIS Specialized Child Care Coordinator
