Here to Help Program
Here to Help is a treatment and prevention program that serves to break the cycle of violence. The program treats mothers who have been abused, as well as their children who have experienced the trauma of witnessing and/or experiencing violence at home. The program focuses on: improving communications between mother and child; developing effective parenting and problem solving skills that benefit both mother and child; and, decreasing the prevalence of isolation that exists amongst families that have experienced violence.
