Serving Washington County
The Family Center’s mission is to build resourceful families and healthy children to create a strong community.
Children are our most valuable resource. What a child doesn’t receive he can seldom later give.
Increasing the active participation and partnership with young people, to better serve them.
What We Do
Child development is a process that involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes.
Positive youth development services engage young people in intentional, productive, and constructive ways, while recognizing and enhancing their strengths.
All families should have access to economic and parenting supports to ensure all children have nurturing and stable relationships with caring adults.
Every year, Vermont saves $2,131,041 when each of Vermont’s 15 Parent Child Centers prevents:
- One woman from entering a correctional facility;
- One teen pregnancy.
- One child from needing foster care placement; and
- One mother and child from requiring public assistance.
