DC families love home visiting!
Hear it from: Michelle J.
"Over the past year that [my home visitor] Chris has been meeting with us, I must admit that my worry, and anxiety has lessened dramatically. I can email, text and call him with any question, concerns and he is right there to assist me along the way. I can’t believe such an amazing program exist. I am so very grateful to Chris for his professionalism, expertise and kindness. I am grateful to Mary’s Center for thinking about parents who needs a support team, a village if you will. Not sure if I would be as empowered and certain about my beginnings as a parent had it not been for this program. I am so thankful to be able to be a part of this greatness!!!"

"What I like the most of this program is the fact that they visit me at home, and that ensures privacy. I can talk with confidence, and I need that, because I do not feel like talking about my personal or family problems around strangers. "

"The home visits were so helpful because I felt like I could ask any question that I wanted to. I felt like there was no question that was silly or small and I was able to use that time to really focus on my every day parenting styles and how to work on my goals. Since then, I have moved out of the transitional housing program and I am still connected with CFLS for their support. I know I can reach out if I have questions and I love attending the parent support group which helps me be connected to a group of women who have been where I have been and also walked the path the I want to walk."
