CW57 hosts CFF's Heather Wittwer, Coordinator & Parent Educator

CW57 hosts former Parent Educator, Heather Wittwer, on Talk of the Town to discuss the Welcome Baby Program.

Early Childhood Intiative

At Center for Families we offer four Home Visiting programs. In each of these programs we acknowledge that parents are the expert on their children and their child's first and most important teacher.        

Welcome Baby helps parents or primary caregivers manage the demands of parenting through educational home visits that help them build confidence in their parenting skills and understand their child's development from birth to 3 years.

Parents and Children Together (PACT) The PACT program, originally funded by Dane County, is no longer being offered as of March 31, 2017. If you need assistance in finding support, please contact Liz Kober at ElizabethK@centerforfamilies.org - 608.729.1165
