Social Service - The Family Place

 

The Family Place supports the positive growth and development of all parents by offering services that encourage families to build upon their strengths. While we provide services to any family with young children, our particular expertise is in serving those families most in need. In this time of economic need, our services are more in demand than ever. We have a strong track record of success and are well known for our expertise in parenting.
 
This is an exciting time at The Family Place as we are in the midst of a capital campaign to help fund the purchase of our newest building on Olcott Drive in Hartford, as well as funding much needed renovations on our two Norwich buildings. These changes will create a welcoming and functional parent child center that will allow The Family Place to deliver education programs and services that lead to better outcomes for Upper Valley families and children. We are building a better future for these families – one family at a time.
 
The Family Place serves 27 towns in Vermont, as well as 9 towns in New Hampshire, in many ways – including child care payment assistance, Home Visiting programs, Playgroups, Family Fun Events, Parent Education, Holiday Assistance for individuals in need, Child Advocacy and therapy, information and referral services, a lending library, and a wonderful on-site program to assist young mothers with parenting skills, knowledge of child development, job readiness and life skills. 
The Family Place served approximately 577 Hartford families last year, both on and off site services. Other residents took advantage of our special events, lending library, website and referral services. For more information on programs and activities, please view our website at www.the-family-place.org or call 649-3268 for assistance.
