You give everything to raise healthy kids.
Child and Family Resource Network
Family support services help you build your child’s skills and make lemonade from the lemons that life throws your way. Because all parents ask for support sometimes.
The Child and Family Resource Network will easily connect you to free and local family support services. We welcome any parent who is pregnant or has kids ages 0-5 in Pottawattamie or Montgomery Counties to sign up.
Whether you are a first-time parent or have older kids, family support can help you in these ways:
We check how your child is developing, offer ideas to address your concerns, and provide activities to build new skills, making your time together more fun!
Support To You
Why is your baby crying? How can you keep up with life’s demands? We listen, help you problem solve, and cheer you on in your important role.
Having other parents to talk to and being able to provide for your family makes your job easier. We connect you to parenting groups and can help secure diapers, food, and financial assistance.
You have big dreams for yourself and your baby. We help you name your goals, create a plan to get there, and connect you to information to carry out your plan.
Get connected to the services you need:
Spend two minutes filling out a form asking about your household and what topics you’re interested in. We only use your information to find the right services for you.
Within a week, you’ll receive a text message or email with which programs we recommend.
You’ll hear directly from those family support programs to learn more and start the process of signing up if you’re interested.
Enjoy having extra support in making sure your baby is healthy and you are living out your dreams for yourself and your child.
ABOUT CHILD AND FAMILY RESOURCE NETWORK
We connect with eight free family support programs that serve families with kids ages 0-5 and pregnant women in Pottawattamie and Montgomery Counties. Each program meets different needs and has specific requirements to participate. We use your information to determine which programs will work best for you, so you don’t have to sort through all of these options on your own.
This network is an initiative of Promise Partners, an organization that coordinates local efforts to ensure families and children have the support and opportunities they need to thrive.
