Empowering Healthy Families

Program Description

MCHC implemented the Empowering Healthy Families Program under the Family Center in 2021 in response to the prevalence of high risk families becoming involved with Chester County Department of Children, Youth and Families and the need for domestic violence and child abuse and neglect prevention services at the community level. MCHC Parent Educators are certified to use the evidence-based PAT model to build family resiliency with up to 40 families per year. Parent Educators meet with participant families twice monthly in their home for 2-3 years with the goal to keep families united and foster a stable environment.
