Goal

The purpose of Thriving at Three is to assure that Latino immigrant children in Greensboro have a positive and strong foundation from birth to three. The CNNC accomplishes this goal by delivering long-term at-home services to at-risk families until the child’s third year – partnering with the parents to provide direct intervention, parenting education, group meetings, case management, referrals, and care coordination for up to the child’s third year.

Currently, the program is working with 40 families. Children’s developmental status is assessed using Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ). Some parents receive the Crianza con Cariño Curriculum to increase their knowledge in child development and parent-child interaction.

“Familias Triunfantes” group sessions are conducted to support the parents and their children.
