Partners In Parenting (PIP)
Aftercare Preventive Services
Understanding and support can make all the difference for parents of children with severe disabilities. NAC offers a range of safety-net services for these families’ on-going needs.
After a family achieves stability and there is no longer a risk of abuse/neglect or foster care placement, they may enter NAC's Partners In Parenting (PIP) program. Aftercare prevention is a vital resource to help parents maintain stability. NAC understands that low-income families of children with severe disabilities and chronic illnesses have on-going needs for one or more types of support services.
Parents of a child with a disability must constantly advocate to keep services in place. Coordination of a multitude of healthcare providers is an overwhelming task and supportive peers are difficult to find. When a crisis arises, it is helpful to have someone to call who can point a family in the right direction, answer questions and meet needs. The PIP Program provides the help that can deter a crisis and improve the overall health and well being of the family.
