Kenosha Area Family and Aging Services, Inc. has been providing home visiting services to parents with infants, toddlers and school age children since 1971. Our home visitation services are focused on strengthening parent-child relationships, and engaging families as partners in the process of nurturing their children.
We emphasize a proactive approach for preventing child abuse and neglect by promoting the idea that family and staff work together in relationships based on equality and respect.
Using the Protective Factors Framework developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy, parents are able to improve skills supporting the growth and development of both the child and the parent. Parents learn the importance of:
- Social and emotional competence of children
- Knowledge of parenting and child development
- Social connections
- Parental resilience
- Concrete support in times of need
