Aftercare Program

Our Aftercare Parenting Education Program supports clients living in the greater Charlotte area who have completed our Maternity or Sarah’s House programs within the last 3 years. A Crittenton social worker conducts home visits and helps clients maintain a safe home environment for their children and healthy relationships. The social worker provides support, counseling, and resources for the healthy development of both the child and mother.

Objectives & Outcomes:

Our goal is to provide counseling and continued care for families to sustain health and stability. We work to ensure:

  • Infants are current on immunizations
  • Children reach their developmental milestones
  • Participants have no substantiated cases of abuse or neglect
  • Parents are able to pay their bills and maintain housing

Services & Approach:

Prior to discharge from our residential programs, we create a plan with clients to best continue serving them once they are living independently. During home visits, the social worker addresses the following topics:

  • Child Development (Ages & Stages)
  • Education and Career Support
  • Parenting Skills
  • Social and Life Skills Development
  • Healthcare and Immunizations
  • Housing/ Furniture Resources¬†
  • Repeat Pregnancy Prevention
  • Substance and Alcohol Use Awareness
  • Sexually Transmitted Disease Awareness
  • Financial Literacy Support
