C4-Aftercare & Community Based Program

C4

What is C4?

C4 is HoHC’s aftercare program that provides ongoing support for women who have successfully discharged from our maternity home and to any mom living within the community. Women in aftercare after discharge from the Lititz House maternity home will continue to receive case management services for up to one year which may include monthly home visits and/or phone check-ins. Women in aftercare and those in the community are provided supports that help each mother become more capable and competent. We provide monthly support groups geared towards helping her understand child development milestones and behaviors as well as self care techniques to help her manage everyday life stressors. Parenting activities include but are not limited to, parent and child playgroups, parenting classes, parenting materials, and individualized parent support provided in response to particular child-rearing concerns or specific parenting questions. Additionally, we assist parents in gaining access to other types of support and resources as needed.

Goals

  • Educate and develop in parents the capacity to take part in mindful parenting and decision making by providing information and workshops on topics such as stress management, nutrition, depression, child abuse prevention and other relevant topics
  • Empower parents through access of community resources, sharing of information and resources as well as advocacy
  • Engage parents in making genuine connections with other parents in a safe environment
