Babies, Bubbles, and Balloons: Ingredients for Building Healthy Relationships
The Center for Children and Families’ mission is to advance the healthy development of children and families in our community and the nation. We do this by converting research on child development into practical approaches, serving children and families in underserved communities in the Dallas area. At the Center, research, practice, and outreach all relate to and grow from one another.
We need you. Your support helps underserved young children and their parents participate in the Center’s applied research and outreach to the community, 100% of your support goes toward our two prominent outreach programs:
Play With Me (Juega Conmigo), our two-generation playful-learning program for children ages 0-3 together with their parents. This program fosters young children’s early self-regulatory behavior and learning skills and promotes healthy parent-child relationships. Play With Me serves over 550 children and parents per year at 5 program sites in high-need communities.
Grow With Me (Crece Conmigo) provides developmental screenings for at-risk children ages 0-5, developmental guidance for their parents based on results of the screening, and referrals for intervention services when delays and disabilities are identified. Having conducted over 1,300 screenings since our founding, we have identified developmental delays and concerns in nearly 50% of the children screened.
