Our goal is to reach high-risk families before they experience any of these tragedies. One of the services that we offer is family coaching. Our family coaches help to guide families down a healthier path. The coaches work with families one on one, conduct home visit, and connect them to resources within the community. Our coaches are here to help encourage, support, and empower families along their journey.
