INFANT & EARLY CHILDHOOD MENTAL HEALTH

The newest program of The Children’s Home helps families grow and thrive together by supporting caregivers in meeting the needs of their infants, toddlers, and young children when trauma, abuse, and/or neglect has occurred.

OUR GOALS

  • Ensure child well-being and stability
  • Heal and stop intergenerational transmission of trauma
  • Improve the relationships in children’s lives, with particular attention to the parent/caregiver and child relationship
  • Accelerate permanency when children are in foster care or kinship care – the desired outcome is to be reunited with their parent(s) or to be permanently placed in a stable home
  • Eliminate or reduce future child maltreatment
