Ledyard National Bank recently donated $1000 to The Family Place to support their upcoming Force for the Future Luncheon on March 31, 2020.
The Family Place, a private, non-profit organization and one of 15 legislatively-designated Parent Child Centers in Vermont, delivers comprehensive programs designed to strengthen positive relationships, teach essential skills and promote enduring healthy growth for families with young children in the Upper Valley and surrounding communities. As such, they play a vital role in the community’s social safety net. Their work involves a whole-family approach to helping children thrive, working with children and caregivers together, promoting positive parenting strategies and ensuring that children have the kinds of experiences that support their physical development, their social functioning, their ability to learn, and their long-term health.
Through home visits, early intervention for infants and toddlers with developmental delays, nursing services, parenting classes and groups, treatment for families dealing with the trauma of sexual abuse, assistance with child care costs, intensive wrap-around supports for young families in poverty, community playgroups, and more, The Family Place partners with families to increase the presence of “protective factors,” things that all families need to be strong and thrive.
