Support for Parents and Families
Family Support Services
We now offer expanded services for pregnant women, new moms, and their families in Hancock and Washington counties:
- Maine Families (Hancock County) provides in-home parenting information while developing caring supportive relationships with parents.
- WIC (Hancock and Washington counties) works to maintain the health of women, infants and children up to age five by providing information on eating well and vouchers for healthy foods.
Sexual Health Resources For Parents
We believe parents are the primary sexuality educators of their children and that you can play an important role in helping young people make healthy decisions about sex. Research shows that youth are more confident in their decisions when they can talk with a trusted adult in their lives. But this doesn’t mean it’s easy to talk about these sensitive topics with your kids. Whether you need support, skills or resources, we’re here to help.
Family Planning Clinical Services
Just because you’ve already started your family doesn’t mean you don’t need family planning services! Whether you’re looking to plan the timing of your next pregnancy, are finished having children, or simply need ongoing, expert reproductive health care to stay healthy, we’re still here for you.
