What is a Parent Child Center?
Parent Child Centers, deeply rooted in the Strengthening Families Framework, provide holistic services that are family-driven, strength based, and multi-generational all while building protective factors in children and families and addressing social determinants of health. PCCs serve every family (in the prenatal period and beyond) that walks through their door; making sure that families have the support and resources they need to nurture their children and get them off to a great start in life. The network of 15 Parent Child Centers serve all of Vermont with a focus on early identification, intervention, and prevention. Individually, there are 15 independent, locally based nonprofit organizations, each providing a wide range of supports and services unique unto the needs of their specific region.
