Our parenting workshop provides intensive parenting training based on “EPIC - Every Person Influences Children,” a nationally recognized parenting curriculum. EPIC sessions are designed to optimize learning, increase abilities, make good choices, and decrease feelings of isolation. Parents who enter our program tell us that they want more help, especially help for their child. It is for this reason Visiting Homemaker Family Service (VHFS) has the in-home support of a Family Skills Mentor available for families with children.
This unique approach, that includes the Family Skills Mentor, gives the participant the additional assistance they need and are asking for. The family Skills Mentor helps parents feel more connected, ready and confident. Obviously, it is the inclusion of the Family Skills Mentor in the home that makes the real difference, because the disconnection between knowledge and practice is difficult to overcome in a busy family’s life.
