COVID Response and Resources for at-home Parents and Children 2020-07-14T15:29:51-05:00

Stay calm.  Stay safe.  Stay healthy.  Stay kind.

Family Nurturing Center has resumed in-person services when appropriate and by appointment.  Please talk with a staff member before visiting.  We’ve taken the following precautions to promote your health and safety:

  • Staff will wear a mask in any common areas of the building and when providing any direct services.  In person services are provided to a smaller number of people to reduce risk and exposure and reduce the number of people in the building at any given time.
  • Increased hand washing is emphasized, and hand sanitizer is available at multiple locations in the building.
  • Daily temperature checks and health screenings are conducted on staff, clients and visitors.
  • Limited in person meetings with guests or other providers.
  • Increased disinfection of all surfaces in between appointments and after hours.
  • Family Nurturing Center will review these safety precautions with you and/or your child at the beginning of your first in person appointment.

We’re also asking for your help in ensuring that we can continue to safely provide services.  Please review our participant handout before your first appointment.

10 Parenting Tips to Calm Down Any Child In a Minute

Tantrums are very common in kids aged 1 to 4. More than half of kids let their frustration out at least once a week, or more often. Why do they do it? By the time they turn 3 or 4, kids have much better language skills than babies, of course, but their vocabulary is still not advanced enough to describe everything they feel. So what can you do to prevent your kids from going crazy now and then?

The pandemic will end – hopefully sooner rather than later. Children and families will still be in need of our free services and programs. With your continued belief in our mission, we’ll still be here, too.  Please consider making a donation to support our critical services to end the cycle of child abuse.
