WEBINAR: Helping Families Meet Resource Needs and Achieve Self-Sufficiency
March 14, 2019
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” (translation from Chinese philosopher Lao Tze).
Early Interventionists and other home visitors who work with families with young children often support families with resource needs. We produce lists of resources or information, make referrals for families, and even bring resources or materials to the family. We are trying to help, but these practices do not necessarily assist the family with build the capacity to meet their ongoing resource needs or future needs that arise. Learn the five-step process for providing better family support so that families meet their immediate needs and learn how to “fish” now and in the future.
