Nurturing children, building on family strengths and finding alternatives to violence
Since 1974, Southside Family Nurturing Center has offered critical services to families who have experienced trauma. After forty years of supporting thousands of children and parents, we know that early intervention and working with all family members is a successful model to build brighter futures for children. It works!
Southside Family Nurturing Center invests in young children and their families. We do this through:therapeutic early childhood education classrooms; speech, occupational, music and play therapy services; and intensive family engagement services including support groups, family bonding activities, and weekly home visiting.
Southside Family Nurturing Center’s services are free of charge and families participate voluntarily.
Here is what our families say:
"Southside is nonjudgmental. It's so important for this community to not feel judged because we are judged in so many places."
"My son is open minded and social and his behavior is very good. Southside prepared him. He is going to High 5 next year and he’s ready."
“Southside helped me feel better about myself as a parent and helped me to better understand my children.”
helped me to meet new people and share experiences. They care, understand
and want to help.”
