Nurturing Families Network


The Nurturing Families Network is a no-cost, voluntary program that provides information, guidance and assistance to first-time parents. Available through some 33 community agencies and birthing hospitals throughout Connecticut, the network offers three distinct, yet interwoven services:

Home visiting services that help new parents at risk for abuse and/or neglect learn how to care for their baby and adjust to the many demands of becoming a parent.

Parenting groups that bring parents together in a supportive environment to share experiences and work together to be the best parents they can be. Topics such as birth through 5, teen parenting and prenatal care are among the subjects typically discussed.

Nurturing connections that bring new parents together with volunteers and others in the community who can lend assistance.

Nurturing Families Network programming has been rigorously researched and shown to successfully identify, engage and assist parents at-risk of harming their children, while reducing the incidence and severity of child abuse and neglect. Studies by the University of Hartford’s Center for Social Research indicate that parents in the program make significant gains in education, employment and self-sufficiency; spend more time with their children; and become more sensitive to their needs.

Quick question: Who wants to be group administrator? Basically it lets you change the photo on top, add stuff in this page and add RSS feds if needed. All this lets you do all kinds of stuff like adding maps or attaching documents.

If someone wants to do it, drop me a line!
