Atlantic Street Center Programs
The Parent-Child Home Program
The Parent-Child Home Program is a two year home-based program for parents and their 2- and 3-year-old children that promotes language development and school readiness through the use of books and toys. Trained home visitors visit families twice a week and lead sessions with the child and parent using books and toys that the home visitor brings and the family keeps.
Mental Health Therapists/Case Managers work one-on-one with children and families to help them identify needs and create action plans for positive changes. Therapists also provide mental health counseling to deal with difficult issues such as depression, trauma recovery, unstable life situations, domestic violence, loss, and abuse. Counseling services are available to any youth/family participating in our services and to the community.
Youth and Family Resource Center
Our purpose is to increase the personal, academic, and social skills youth need to be successful in life. Services include:
- Academic support (tutoring, homework help, summer school)
- Service Learning, including community service projects to encourage youth to give back to the community
- Social/Leadership Development Skills, which consists of structured activities and support groups to help youth develop their social skills, leadership potential and social responsibility.
