Family Development Program-Help for Low-Income, Single Parents
Our Family Development Program provides comprehensive home-based support services to at-risk, low-income single parents with children ages 5 and under who live in the Tri-County area of Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester. We promote positive family dynamics and self-sufficiency by assisting the mother with individual counseling, continuing education and career growth. A primary focus of our Family Development Program is to help young children enter school “ready to learn” by strengthening the mother’s ability to meet the child’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive developmental needs. Homeless families may apply for our transitional housing project, which provides subsidized rent so that each disadvantaged young mother may complete her education and pursue vocational training, thus giving her the opportunity to achieve independence and greater financial security for her family.
