A comprehensive prevention model starts with building upon individual knowledge and skills that increase resources and capacity for raising safe and healthy children.
When broad community initiatives are added to these efforts a more transformative force is at work for families. The Family Tree provides referral and support via a 24/7 Parenting HelpLine. Through a network of partners across Maryland, we reach large groups of people with information and resources. Technical assistance is offered to providers with information on prevention, child rearing, community risk and protective factors.
