PGCRC's Family Support Center is the hub for culturally-competent, family-friendly programs: child development and family literacy, parenting and health education, job readiness and employment skills. All services are free, including on-site childcare and door-to-door transportation. Staff members speak Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, Dari, and Farsi – because speaking someone's language matters. The Home Visiting program builds on families' strengths so that infants and children can thrive. It includes Family Connects, which brings nurses to the home right after birth, and Healthy Families, which focuses on positive parenting. Project Win helps identify children in childcare programs who have special needs. In addition to providing professional development to over 1,000 childcare providers each year, the Resource Center offers training and on-site mentoring support to inner-beltway providers serving children from low-income communities. PGCRC reaches out to families in Prince George’s County and beyond.
