Each year, Neighbors Link serves over a thousand immigrants with programs to strengthen families and support their development. The Neighbors Link Family Center is a high energy hub for three main areas of learning: 1) parent education; 2) early childhood development and academic support for children; and 3) gateway for linking families to related community resources.

Our Parent-Child Together program is designed for parents with children from birth to age 4. The focus is on positive parenting skills, early childhood development and school readiness. In a group setting, parents are provided with facilitated peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Classes are structured and include circle time, reading and music and movement, during which children learn colors, shapes, letters, numbers, and pre-literacy concepts.
