The Connections program offers first-time families perinatal and parenting support through phone contact, group programming and home visitation. The program is a link to the Nurturing Families Network, a statewide program created by the Children’s Trust Fund with the goal of reducing parenting stress, parent-child conflict, and parental social isolation by offering free resources and support to new families.
