Our Mission:

The mission of The Family Connection is to provide an early childhood educational program designed to improve the health and well-being of pregnant women, parents, and their children. 

What We Do:

Personal visits are the foundation of The Family Connection program.  During a personal visit:
-We will share information about child development and help you to anticipate what your child will do next
-We will help you find answers to questions and concerns that you may have regarding your child or other family issues
-We will provide an age-appropriate activity to help you observe your child's abilities while having fun and building a solid foundation with your child
-We will always support you in becoming confident in your role as your child's first and most important teacher

Earn points when you get involved to redeem at Parents Place for diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, baby clothing, and other basic baby supplies.

All Family Connection programs are free of charge to Henry County residents with children ages 0-5, pending availability.
