The well-being of children is dependent on the capacity of parents and caretakers to nurture, care for, and support them. At the Karsh Center, we empower parents and caretakers to be engaged and proactive in the health and wellness of their kids and foster skills for child and family development. Beginning with prenatal-care instruction, we work to give parents and caretakers the tools to provide for each child’s physical, educational, and emotional growth.
