Project: The purpose of the SKIP: Healthy Families America (SKIP: HFA) project is to implement the Parents as Teachers (PAT) curriculum through the Healthy Families America (HFA) model. This would be piloted under the umbrella of the locally established SKIP to a Great Start (Successful Kids=Involved Parents) home visiting program, and intentionally focus on reducing the high rates of child abuse and neglect in Genesee County. SKIP to a Great Start has been serving Genesee County families for 15 years. During this time there has been a significant increase in the incidence of child abuse and neglect. In response, the Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) which operates SKIP to a Great Start program plans to make improvements to the program. The intention is to more effectively address the problem of child abuse and neglect by utilizing the HFA model and continuing to use the PAT curriculum. In addition, there will be purposeful efforts to integrate the Strengthening Families Protective Factors framework into all aspects of the program.

Project: The purpose of this project is to augment Motherly Intercession's current program service delivery by; integrating a Circle of Parents component into the Strengthening Incarcerated Families (SIF) Program Model and further expanding its service delivery by increasing its focus on the male inmate population in Genesee County jail and previously incarcerated fathers in the community. 

Motherly Intercession will apply its Family Stress Model (Please see Logic Model SIF & PWI Family Stress in attachments) to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect among the parents and alternate caregives for children of currently or previously incarcerated mothers or fathers of Flint (Genesee County) Michigan. Parents and alternate caregiers; whose lives have been negatively impacted by multiple traumatic experiences (i.e. victimization during their own childhood, the poisonous Flint water crisis, incarceration, community violence, poor economic conditions, generational povverty and other challenges). All of which further increase the risk for traumatic stress disorders among the parents and alternate caregivers who are responsible for the care of young children. The enhancement of the programs and wraparound services that are provided by Motherly Intercession coupled with expansion efforts to include a larger segment of the community is invaluable to our efforts to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglectful actions toward this young, innocent, population of children
