The Five Protective Factors, Continued

The second of the Five Protective Factors is Social Connections. 

Social Connections
Friends, family members, neighbors and community members provide emotional support, help solve problems, offer parenting advice and give concrete assistance to parents. Networks of support are essential to parents and also offer opportunities for people to “give back”, an important part of self- esteem as well as a benefit for the community. Isolated families may need extra help in reaching out to build positive relationships.

Welcome Baby is a program that is designed to provide mothers and families support from within the community. Our volunteers are trained to provide you necessary support for your family. We can provide you educational resources as well as emotional support as you may experience different emotions during this time of your life. The support you can receive from our program can help you to have long lasting and positive relationships with your family, friends, and community.
