Westside Infant-Family Network (WIN)

Description:

From ages 0-3, a child's secure relationship with the primary caregiver helps develop the emotional health that predicts later success in life. But poverty, homelessness, recent immigration and violence can impair family dynamics. This six-agency collaborative offers mental health care for young children and their families. Building on their relationships with local families, staff at a food pantry, childcare center, health clinic and other partner agencies are cross-trained to recognize mental health concerns. The network employs culturally sensitive therapists and psychiatrists to treat families at home or on-site at each agency.
