The Parenting Journey

Our Goal:

The Parenting Journey is a home visitation program that provides individual support for families experiencing complex social and emotional
challenges that may impact overall family functioning, parent-child relationships and the well-being and development of children and youth.

How We Help:

Home Visitors visit families in their homes and/or in other community locations. They work collaboratively with families to build meaningful helping relationships while collectively identifying strengths, resources, challenges and priorities to address the key areas of support noted above.
