A brighter future for my family
Kelly always wanted the best for her sons, so when her family was impacted by domestic violence, she came to Family Place to get the support they needed.
When they first entered Family Place at St. David’s Center, Kelly’s sons were shy and apprehensive due to the emotional experiences of their past. Through two years of therapeutic preschool, home-visits and family counseling, Kelly saw her children begin to make friends and open up to her. “Not only did the Family Place staff help my sons, they helped me become a better mother.”
Looking to the future, Kelly credits Family Place for preparing her children for kindergarten.
“They have grown so much socially and emotionally because of the staff’s dedication and support.”
Family Place Day Treatment
Family Place is a treatment program for children struggling to manage their emotions and behaviors at home and/or within their childcare or school setting. Family Place promotes the positive and healthy development of children by:
- Identifying emotional, social and developmental needs
- Providing opportunities to learn and practice new behaviors in well-supported classrooms
- Improving parent/child relationships and helping parents learn a variety of ways to respond to the needs of their children

The goals of classroom intervention are to repair social, emotional and behavioral functioning; and improve a child’s self-esteem, self-confidence and capacity to engage in successful relationships.
