Attachment & Bio-Behavioral Catch-Up (ABC)
Caring for a baby is tough. No matter how many books you read or people who give you advice, nothing can prepare you for the responsibility of raising a child. But the help you need is just a knock away! The Family Tree’s free ABC Program is designed for parents of babies ages 6 months to 18 months. Our trained educators help parents bond with their infant, create healthy attachment and ensure baby is growing healthy.
In collaboration with Prevent Child Abuse America, Health Care Access Maryland and other health care providers, we are proud to offer this research-based home visitation service designed for expecting parents in Baltimore. It offers free support services that include pre-natal and peri-natal medical care, parenting education, skill building resources and connections to community-based programs. Plus, we can serve any Spanish-speaking pregnant mom in the city.
This program, which offers ongoing support up until the child is 3 years old, is recognized by the U.S. Department of HHS as one of seven proven home visiting models.
PATH is a free and voluntary home visitation program that supports parents in their efforts to care for their family, whether it’s raising a toddler or a teen.
