OUR HISTORY:
The Families Plus concept was developed in 1998 by Dr. Brenda Holland. She engaged community professionals and concerned citizens to address a need for under served youth in Delta County, living in unhealthy and often chaotic environments. From this group, a new type of community-based program for children was initiated. Each mentoring family would make a commitment to a child or children with the aid of a mental health care professional and with parent partners. Parent partners cater to the needs of family members surrounding these children providing insight to resources and opportunities available within our community and to lend a helping hand when needed.
