Our Work Continues: Home Visiting with Technology

The Family Tree is the Maryland Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, and we are proud to say that despite the temporary shutdown of our offices due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to provide our essential services to the families we serve. Thanks to technology, we are connecting with the parents we serve remotely, and getting better at it each day. Just last week, our Family Support Services department successfully had their monthly team meeting on Zoom!

While our staff might not be together, we are always there to support each other in order to better serve the families in our programs.

Here are a few more wonderful examples of our Family Support Services team adjusting our work to reach the parents who depend on us!

Natasha is still connecting with her families in our Healthy Families Program.
Sharelle is still able to review curriculum from our Parenting Assistance in the Home (PATH) program!

Often, when our Home Visitors go into someone’s home, they bring a very needed supply of diapers, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult to keep our supply stocked and get the diapers to those who need them. Last week, Natasha Peterson, Assistant Director of Family Support Services, made a special request to our friends at Share Baby, and they made it possible for us to (safely) deliver diapers to new moms and dads who needed them. A special thank you to Eliseba and Tonya from Share Baby who made it all possible! You’re amazing!
