Family Services

Penfield Children’s Center recognizes the vital role that families play in helping their children reach their full potential.

Penfield’s Family Services program helps families develop the skills necessary to foster their children’s development and to stabilize the environment in which the children are raised.

Family Services include:
-Parent education workshops on a wide range of topics from toilet training to understanding behavior problems to home safety.
-Family events such as parties, ethnic/cultural celebrations, holiday gatherings and field trips.
-Parent support groups.
-English-speaking or Spanish-speaking Parent Mentors, (staff with experience raising their own children with special needs). The Parent Mentor program is generously funded through United Way of Greater Milwaukee.
-School-transitions – help parents plan for the next step in their children’s education after “graduation” from Penfield.
