Parent/Family Support

Parents and extended families of our students may seek a positive balance between work and home. It is not easy nor straightforward sometimes to perform well at work and providing all the support that a family needs to thrive. Taking care of the daily needs of extended family members, looking after and monitoring the needs of young children, and maintaining stable housing and financial support can add additional stress and worry.

We recognize these challenges and want to help.
