Safe and fun spaces for families with children 0 to 5
The new FamilySpace Program offers safe and fun spaces for families with children 0 to 5 to meet, socialize and receive information and services based on their needs and interests.
FamilySpace is a weekly time and space in select local libraries where families with young children can come together to connect with other families going through similar experiences to learn, share and grow together. A trained staff person also assists with connecting families to resources and services.
Take a look at our recent grand opening event!
Each FamilySpace location consists of the following features to support families:
• Family-friendly spaces, materials, and activities designed to meet the needs of families.
• Onsite trained professional staff during the program’s hours.
• Referrals to services and resources such as:
-- Home Visiting
-- Job Training
-- Early Childhood Mental Health Services
-- Substance Abuse Prevention Services
-- Early Literacy Programs
-- Health/Nutritional Services/Lead Screening
-- Other interests as identified
Family input is a key part of how the FamilySpace locations operate. Neighborhood-based Family Advisory Committees guide the programming to meet family interests and needs and to achieve equity through shared decision making.
