Nurturing Parenting Group-Based Programs
NPP is an evidence-based, nationally recognized curriculum that focuses on family strengthening and prevention. The curriculum is family-centered and trauma informed designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abuse and neglect. Ēma Groups meet weekly at the Ēma Center to facilitate the NPP curriculum – also offering childcare, transportation, and a meal at every meeting. Lastly, Ēma offers an incentive program offering mothers gift cards, child/baby items, clothes, household items, and hygienic items to shop through as they achieve their weekly and monthly goals.
Ēma’s Case Management Team is trained and equipped to develop Individualized Action Plans for mothers in crisis. Case Manager’s utilize the IAP’s to create tangible, action-oriented goals and outcomes. The CM is responsible for providing intentional and transformational support to every client as they work towards achieving their goals or Court-ordered Case Plans.
