Life Skills

The Life Skills Program is a community-based program that provides solution-focused, strengths-based parenting education and life skills services for parents/caretakers of at-risk dependent children and youth. The participants will be either English or Spanish-speaking families.

The Life Skills Program is approximately a four to twelve month program for Spanish-speaking families with children aged 0-18 who are involved with the Department of Children, Youth, and Families who are referred by a CYF worker or the court to receive Life Skills Program services. Life Skills Community Health Workers provide face-to-face contact at least once a week for a minimum of two hours of direct services each week.

Community Health Workers use the Standard Triple P evidence-based Curriculum.

This program serves the following populations:

  • Low-income children and families
  • Families that speak a language other than English
  • Families with a history of child abuse and neglect
  • Families with a history of domestic violence
  • Families with a history of substance use
