Parent and Child Center

Strengthening Families

The Parent and Child Center at Bristol Hospital has a special goal, which centers on the important concept of "Family Life Works."

Focusing on Our Youth

Our primary focus is on prevention of child abuse, neglect and family violence by providing support systems for families. Our programs are designed to target several areas that have been identified as crucial to developing strong, nurturing families:

  • stress/anger management
  • family finances
  • child development
  • communication skills
  • effective discipline
  • planning/decision-making skills

Our Mission

  • To promote and support healthy families through education and resources that help them understand how to work together to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for children to live and grow.
  • To increase public awareness about child safety, community resources, and family life through events, workshops, mentoring and referrals.
  • To collaborate with service providers to sustain ongoing agency networking, ensuring that the needs of every family are met and child abuse and neglect are prevented.
