About this Program

Parent Support Services (PSS) provides culturally sensitive case-management to Department of Children and Families (DCF) involved parents that require intensive support services.

Program components include: parenting skills building, life skills training, parent/child mediation, community service connection, and emergency support.

The goal of this program is to promote the well-being of children between the ages of 0 through 17 and their families by providing appropriate culturally and linguistic supportive services, building on the existing strengths of the family, and empowering families to make their own decisions in an effort to reduce or eliminate child abuse and neglect. We also implement the Nurturing Parenting Curriculum in cases where this intervention is necessary. Visits to the parent and family are weekly.
