Family Resource Center offers case management, parent education, diapers and a clothing closet. Drop-in services are available Monday – Friday 9:00-4:00 or call to make an appointment. Services are free for all caregivers of children up to age 18.

 

The Community Parent Partner Program serves families with children 0-5 referred from Shasta County Children and Family Services. Parent Partners work with low-risk abuse case families and connect them with community-based organizations such as counseling, drug rehabilitation and other family-strength companies.

 

The Road to Resilience Program Parent Partner Program is offered through a $1.6 million state grant from the Office of Child Abuse Prevention. PHC has hired eight new case workers that will provide services to pregnant women with a history of/or current issue with substance abuse.

 

Launch Parent Partner Program is through a partnership with First 5 Shasta, Shasta County Health and Human Services, The Shasta County Office of Education and four local elementary schools to place AmeriCorps Parent Partners into kindergarten classrooms through a program called “Launch”. The goal is to reduce absenteeism in kindergarten and launch children into a successful school experience.

 

Education and Public Awareness is offered in pursuit of our mission of promoting a local culture that values all children and families. PHC is dedicated to educating the community regarding warning signs and long-term repercussions of child abuse and neglect and while offering free support services for parents and other caregivers. PHC conducts more than 20 outreach activities and/or events each year in order to distribute evidence-based parenting guides and educational materials such as Triple P, SafeCare, 5 Protective Factors, the 40 Developmental Assets and Hope Theory. In an effort to provide education and awareness while keeping costs at a minimum PHC also maintains a web-site with resources and information for partners, parents and the community.
