The Family Center would like to share these two upcoming community events. The CLiF Storyteller is a wonderful event that only lasts up to an hour but provides a fun activity that can be complemented with time on the playground, a swim in the pool or a fun picnic in Rotary Park. Each child will receive 2 new books, free of charge! The other event is an opportunity with the Ronald McDonald Dental Care Mobile that works in partnership with the Health Center in Plainfield. Anyone 0 – 20 years of age and under can receive a free dental screening & fluoride varnish. Parental permission is required. ... See MoreSee Less

What We Do

For Children

Child development is a process that involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes.

For Youth

Positive youth development services engage young people in intentional, productive, and constructive ways, while recognizing and enhancing their strengths.

For Families

All families should have access to economic and parenting supports to ensure all children have nurturing and stable relationships with caring adults.

Take Action

Every year, Vermont saves $2,131,041 when each of Vermont’s 15 Parent Child Centers prevents:

  • One woman from entering a correctional facility;
  • One teen pregnancy.
  • One child from needing foster care placement; and
  • One mother and child from requiring public assistance.
