These moments of engagement have shown success in decreasing disruptive behaviors from students in the morning on the bus and when they arrive at school. In the afternoons, students receive an afternoon snack, homework assistance, and additional art, dance, and music activities. MCFHC transports to Bryant, DeLong, Franklin, Grant, and Stanley Elementary.
The moms and women’s group provides support to those currently experiencing or previously experienced domestic violence, housing instability, at-risk of homelessness, currently homeless, and/or in recovery. Research-based parenting programs (Triple P, Safe Care, and Families Moving Forward) were utilized to gather the most pertinent and impactful information to create a tailored curriculum.
