Parenting

At Family Life Services, we whole-heartedly support your choice to parent. We want to help young mothers and fathers to be the best parents they can be. But if you are having a hard time deciding which option is best for you, make an appointment to talk about all the facts and make an informed decision not an impulsive one.


Am I ready to parent?
Our client advocates have resources and information to guide you through this decision making process. If you decide to parent, our programs will provide support throughout the pregnancy and early stages of parenting. Make an appointment to hear more about how we can help you.


How does parenting affect my future?
Parenting may change the timeline, but your goals and dreams are still ahead of you! We offer parenting education classes to help you learn more about what to expect during your pregnancy and continued support after your baby is born. We also have resources available if you are looking to continue your education or learn skills to obtain employment. Make an appointment to talk about your future plans and how we can help you meet your goals while parenting.


What assistance is available to help me support a child??
• Limited Counseling
• Parenting Classes
• Material Needs (maternity clothing, baby items, etc)
• Community Referrals (WIC, Medicaid, Doctors, etc)


How do I know I will be a good parent?
Many women who planned their pregnancy ask themselves this same question. You may have many concerns about being a parent, but our client advocates are here to listen to you and provide you with all of the information you need to help answer the questions you have. We will help you through this and will build you up to be the best parent you can be.


What if I am a single parent?
Single, married, living together, separated… we see it all. We are not here to judge you. We are here to help you, but we do have some specific resources available to help single moms. We partner with a local church who offers a program called Embrace Grace that is especially designed for single moms. If you are interested in more information about this program, make an appointment to talk about it with a client advocate.



Family Life Services can help answer these questions for you by providing accurate, up to date information about parenting, specialized parenting classes, and resource to take care of your needs. Make an appointment today to talk about how we can help you.
