Behind Our Approach
The Two-Generation Program is a whole family approach, focusing on family connections from birth to college. Our supports assist families in achieving financial and career goals as they work towards continuing education, and workplace success. Our family wellness component helps children and families receive needed social emotional supports through a trauma informed lens.
“With the help of the entire Two-Generation team, I was able to graduate from nursing school-with distinction. I also recently bought my own home. I could not have done it without the Two-Generation team, I owe so much to them.”
-Kendra Campbell, Two-Generation Parent
