PARENTS AND CHILDREN


Parents and children participate in the development of their Family Success Plan.  They visit monthly with staff to ensure that progress towards their goals is being made and to address any challenges.


Parents and children also receive support to strengthen their relationships with each other and build resiliency through weekly classes in the Strengthening Families Program.  When needed, they also receive behavioral modification interventions that are tailored to their unique situations.


Families are also able to participate in the Finances for the Family program through the Human Relations Commission and The Children's Museum of the Upstate so that the entire family learns healthy habits toward money and how to implement the habits in their families.
