When a family inquires about this program, the program director will schedule a home visit to learn about the family and their needs. We then match one of our screened, trained, and supervised volunteers to the family for a three-month session of ParentCare.
Volunteers visit the family twice weekly in the first month, and once weekly for the second and third months. Each visit lasts approximately two hours.
The program also provides a wide array of resources and referrals including emotional care, breastfeeding and first feedings support, and other needs of the expectant and new family.
Families are encouraged to apply for ParentCare while pregnant.
ParentCare is not a babysitting service; rather, we are devoted to nurturing the nurturers.
