The Kinship Family & Youth service priority for Catholic Charities of Steuben helps families develop the capacities for healthy family functioning and promotes healthy child development.
Child Development Services protect child safety, promote healthy births and nurture child and youth development. Expectant parents access preventive health care to support healthy birth outcomes, while new parents receive coaching in this important role. Children experience safe, caring environments and engaging, age-appropriate experiences that foster healthy development and set the stage for future learning.
Family Preservation Services help families build the strengths that set the stage for the joy and togetherness they want for themselves. Families improve knowledge and skills, work to develop close nurturing relationships, tap into their resiliency when challenges arise, and learn how to connect with concrete supports to address any barriers to family success.
