Helping Children Thrive supports mothers who are leaving situations of domestic violence to develop effective parenting skills. This 12-week program helps mothers understand how domestic violence can undermine their parenting and offers alternative strategies in a safe and supportive environment. The overall goal is to strengthen families and stop the cycle of intergenerational violence. Participants develop improved mental, physical, and emotional health, which manifests as higher confidence, a stronger sense of belonging and community connections, as well as an improved ability to parent.
