NEW BRITAIN – Klingberg Family Centers introduced their new program, the Quality Parenting Center, at an open house.
Attending the event were Department for Children and Families (DCF) Commissioner Vanessa Durantes, Deputy Commissioner Michael Williams and new DCF New Britain Office Director Donna Maitland-Ward. .
The Quality Parenting Center (QPC) is located on the main New Britain campus at Rosemarie Burton House.
This DCF-funded program offers parents the opportunity to spend family time with their children, learn and practice new parenting skills, repair family relationships, and improve the quality of parent-child interaction. . As times and practices change and DCF moves away from the group care model for young people in care, Klingberg has adapted to the needs of the community with this new program for families involved in DCF.
This quiet and safe establishment offers a family environment for visits, has a culturally and linguistically diverse staff and flexible opening hours. Those families involved in DCF can use this service for up to six months.
Klingberg Family Centers is a private, nonprofit, full-service agency that was founded in 1903. Klingberg’s main campus is located in New Britain, with an additional location in Hartford.
