The Families Together program at Providence Children's Museum is growing!
Created in collaboration with RI Department of Children, Youth and Families in 1992, Families Together provides therapeutic visitation and permanency planning for children in foster care and their families. In 2010, the program served more than 500 children and parents in 175 families.
Thanks to The Nina Foundation, Families Together will extend its services to court-separated families with a homelike setting for family healing. Opening this fall, "Nina's House" will provide a warm, welcoming environment for therapeutic visitation for children, their parents, siblings and extended family. Take a peek at some of the work to get Nina's House ready to serve families:
We're celebrating the opening of Nina's House with a virtual shower! If you would like to contribute a gift from the Nina's House registry, you can do so by November 15. All donations will benefit children in foster care and their families as they work to strengthen relationships and parenting skills.
