CSSW recognizes the impact that family life has on a child’s ability to grow and develop. We have established programs that recognize and address the needs of children to ensure they are in a stable, safe and loving environment. In addition, CSSW offers caregivers the necessary outlet or training needed to mentally and emotionally tend to their family members. These programs facilitate positive interaction between children and their parent/caregiver, connect caregivers to community resources and promote a family’s ability to stay together.
