helping families improve their relationships


helping families achieve

healthy dynamics

A New Leaf’s Family Connections program is a change-focused intervention that helps families to set and achieve goals that will facilitate healthier family dynamics. Family goals include Social Support, Family Functioning, Family Resources, Child Well Being, Parenting Attitudes and Managing Parenting Stress.

Help begins when a Family Connections Consultant meets with the family in individualized sessions to best address each family member’s needs based on their unique situations. This ensures that families receive the right services and support at the right time. 

The Family Connections Program also connects families to services so parents can meet the family’s needs which can include; utility, rent or child care assistance, emergency food or clothing, household furniture and supplies, and connection to mental or behavioral health and substance use resources. 

By helping families address their unique challenges, connecting them to urgently needed resources, and by simply giving them an opportunity to help themselves, A New Leaf is creating stronger families across the Valley.
