Family Check-Up Helps Families Build & Grow Together

The day-to-day challenges of raising children aren’t easy, but families don’t have to do it alone. At the Homewood-Brushton Family Support Center, Family Check-Up offers an opportunity for all families to take a seat, talk about their challenges, and move forward with strategies to solve them.

About Family Check-Up

In family support centers across the nation, the Family Check-Up (FCU) model aims to promote child and family well-being by providing parents and caregivers with new skills and tools to strengthen family relationships. The program starts off with an initial interview and an assessment of the family’s strengths and needs, followed by creating tailored goals to meet the unique needs of each family. A final feedback session provides an opportunity to continue building parenting skills through the “Everyday Parenting Curriculum” and information on possible follow-up services.

All services are free and confidential.

Benefits of Participation

For more than 20 years, research has shown that participating in FCU:

    • increases parent and caregiver confidence,
    • reduces family stress and conflict,
    • and reduces challenging behaviors displayed by preschoolers, school-aged children, and teens.

Schedule an Appointment

Interested in signing up? Schedule an appointment by contacting Family Coach, Adriana Chung, at 412.727.6649. See our interview with Adriana to learn more.
