The Family Partnership Program provides participants with a Family Partner who serves as their coach beginning in the prenatal period through their child’s second birthday. Program participants receive one-on-one skills-based coaching to help them achieve personalized goals relating to holistic health and wellness, economic mobility, workforce development, life skills, and parenting. The Family Partner supports participants in navigating prenatal and postpartum care, connects them to resources, and provides family stabilization services. Click here to meet our Family Partners.
The Family Partnership Program uses a 3-tier model of programming. In this program participants move through three levels of coaching that allow them the opportunity of increasing autonomy as they work toward their goals.
Participants in this program receive cash gift cards in recognition of meeting personal goals and program milestones, and have the opportunity to earn points for participating in group-based programming through our Stronger Generations Community Calendar.
Family Partners are currently located at five sites including Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center, Brookside Community Health Center, Whittier Street Health Center, Mattapan Community Health Center, and the OB Ambulatory Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Services are provided in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole / Los servicios se brindan en inglés, español y criollo haitiano.
