The Nurturing Families Network Program at the Hospital of Saint Raphael provides information, support, education and community resources to first-time parents in New Haven and surrounding areas. Nurturing Families Network is a state program that seeks to strengthen the bonds between parents and their children, improve healthcare and school readiness outcomes, provides support to new parents as they transition into parenthood, and prevent child abuse and neglect.
Within the Nurturing Families Network Program there are three components:
Home Visiting Program offers weekly home visitation and case management services to our most vulnerable families;
Nurturing Connections Program provides weekly telephone support, topic specific literature, and referral to community service partners;
Parenting Group Program offers a community-based parenting education and support group for families with children ages birth to five years old.

This week, 200 more small businesses from underinvested communities across urban and rural America are receiving grants of up to $10K to help cover payroll, rent and other critical operating costs in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. That brings the total number of grantees to 400, all of whom are benefiting from a $7.5 million commitment by Verizon. The twice-weekly Pay It Forward LIVE series will also come to a close on Thursday with a performance by Dave Matthews—the very artist who kicked off the livestream campaign to bring attention (and funding) to the plight of entrepreneurs hit hardest by the crisis.
Jeanne Cola, executive director of LISC Rhode Island, offers a succinct primer on what LISC is doing, and will do, to help communities survive the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
