Because children don't come with a "How to Raise Me" guidebook, Waypoint's Family Resource Centers offer an array of family support services for families with children ages 0-21. Services are designed to help your family through any type of challenge, whether it's first time parenting, making ends meet, parental substance misuse, housing or employment instability, child wellness, education, or emotional stressors. Services may be provided in the comfort of your family home, or anywhere else you feel comfortable in the community.
