Our family-centered approach allows women with children and pregnant women to receive treatment. Because of the expertise of the Meta House Child & Family Team, we can keep children safely with their mothers and out of the Child Welfare System. Child and family specialists teach parenting and nurturing skills through a variety of structured and unstructured settings including:
- “Mom & Me” Nurturing Lab
- Individualized Parenting Assessment and Plan
- Specialized Classes and Coaching
