Family Support

Parenting is a tough and rewarding job. All parents need support and encouragement. Community Action offers playgroups, family activities, parenting education, and support for many kinds of parents and caregivers. 

Healthy Families provides free in-home support to pregnant or first-time parents, age 20 and under, living in Franklin & Hampshire Counties, the North Quabbin region, and the towns of Chester and Ludlow.

The Parent-Child Home Program promotes school-readiness by involving children, ages 2 & 3, in educational play during home visits. 

The Family Center offers resources for parents and caregivers, as well as playgroups and fun activities for children 0 - 6 years of age.
