About: Healthy Families Durham at the Center for Child & Family Health is an evidence-based model that prevents child abuse and neglect through in-home coaching and support for parents living with toxic levels of stress. By improving parent-child interactions and improving parenting skills, we help ensure a safe, healthy home in the crucial first three years of a child’s development.
2017-18 DGIN funding will help support Healthy Families Durham’s continued implementation of Circle of Security, an early intervention group model that builds attachment and security between parents and their children. The grant will also assist with promoting breastfeeding among the families that Healthy Families Durham serves.
