Taking care of young children can be demanding and sometimes feels like more than we can handle.  Helping Families Raise Healthy Children is here to help both you and your child.  The initiative provides enhanced, coordinated services to help Alllegheny County families who are facing the related and often co-occurring challenges of parental depression and early childhood developmental delays—creating a brighter, healthier future for children and parents.  Families who live in Allegheny County and have a parent or caregiver struggling with stress, sadness, or depression, and have a young child (ages birth to 3) with, or at risk of having, a developmental delay are eligible.  If you feel sad almost all the time and if nothing seems to help you feel better, we can lend the hand that you need.  Together with The Alliance for Infants and Toddlers, Helping Families Raise Healthy Children can provide:  services that assist both you and your child, early intervention services (services that help a child advance in all areas of development), a link to behavioral health services and a link to community supports.  To learn more, please call The Alliance for Infants and Toddlers at 412-885-6000 and ask for more information about the Helping Families Raise Healthy Children initiative.
