I recently had a chance to see Foothill Family Service in action. They are an incredible organization that believes in early intervention and importantly in the wrap around approach. They approach issues with an individual child not in a vacuum but rather aim to touch every member of the family, giving the entire family the skills necessary to address the issues of that child and overcome their own problems. Their approach is incredibly thoughtful, professional and caring. Which is a must when dealing with children especially as young as infants. And even their less well known programs such as the perpetrator’s treatment groups – a 52 week program to help abusive parents identify and control their emotions, is quietly making a difference in the lives of current and future families.
