Parents are at the center of strong families.

The Parent Support services offered by Brightpoint are designed to recognize the parent’s unique and irreplaceable role in developing young lives. By educating and supporting parents, the incidence of child maltreatment is greatly reduced

When families stay together:

  • children function better socially
  • achieve in school
  • and are less likely to require social services in the future

These services are also proactive, designed to intercede and provide assistance to parents before issues become greater social problems.
