The Young Parent Network is a program designed to address the needs of pregnant and parenting teens and young adults ages 24 and younger who are struggling with the emotional, financial and personal demands of being a parent.
Casa de Amparo provides residentially-based services, in a safe and nurturing setting, for children aged 6-18 who have been removed from their homes as a result of abuse or neglect. During their stay at Casa de Amparo, each child receives comprehensive care to address their individual physical, social, emotional, developmental and educational needs while also ensuring that they have as many normal childhood experiences as possible. By treating each child with dignity and respect, we are able to nurture the incredible potential that exists within all children.
The Counseling Center staff at Casa de Amparo guides, advocates for and supports children and families participating in Casa’s programs, to help treat the effects of child abuse and neglect, and stop the cycle.
Casa de Amparo’s Family Visitation Program provides a neutral, supervised setting for North County parents who have been separated from their children as a result of child abuse or neglect, enabling regular visits and positive interactions and eventual reunification.
Parents who want to develop healthy, nurturing parenting skills and avoid the risk of mistreatment or neglect, bring their children to Casa de Amparo’s Hayward Child Development Center (HCDC) for therapeutic child care, pre-school and family support.
In 2008, Casa de Amparo established a Military Support Program at the Hayward Child Development Center in Oceanside,designed to help military families facing physical, emotional and financial hardship.
