“Family Care provides our clients a safe place to stop and reflect on how their everyday interactions with their children have lifelong effects. The group members engage in conversations about attachment, discipline, cultural values, and generational change, leaving Family Care with new ideas and techniques to help them reach the goals they have set for themselves and their children.”
Jennie and Selma, Drueding Center, January 2012

“I would say that Family Care provided an opportunity for our moms to engage with each other and explore different aspects of their own parenting style as well as aspects of how they were parented. The group discussions were powerful and elicited a range of emotions as mothers were able to confront the impact of how they were parented as it relates to how they parent their children.”
Marilyn, Lutheran Settlement, January 2012   

“Family Care has been a good experience for us. Participants have been able to look at themselves, their childhoods, and come to terms and face things so they could move on to being better parents.  We have seen them be more nurturing, open, affectionate, paying more attention, and listening more to their children. One parent of an older child, after buying her child a pair of sneakers, brought the sneaker box to the group the next week. Inside the box was a note from her child saying thank you and what a good mother she was. She was so excited to show the group because this had never happened to her before.”
