SHIELDS for Families
June 30, 2011

My name is Douglas Hernandez, ACT Program Supervisor. Shields for Families. Im have been with the program for five years.
Our program receives high risk cases from DCFS. Our program has helped hundreds of families in these past 5 years given families the opportunity for participate in free classes in English and Spanish such as: Parenting, Domestic Violence, Anger Management, Financial Literacy, Healthy Marriage, and even Earthquale Preparedness. Each class clients attend, they are assisted with free transportation to and from classes and free childcare. Clients and their families have also been assisted in referrals outside our program such as: legal advise, health, education, housing, food banks, immigration, recreation, etc.
Our clients have been so pleased with our services that many of them are participating in our After-Care Program, which is a program for former clients, who continue learning how to prepare healthy meals for their children, self-esteem classes, orientation on the importance of reading and play with their children, discipline, how to find jobs,etc,etc.
Our program has been a success for these past 5 years, we hope to continue assisting clients and their families in the future.
