A group of friends gathered on a recent Saturday night at the home of Rachel and Mark Rosenthal to learn about the programs of the JF&CS Center for Early Relationship Support® and hear directly about our work. As we sat around the living room, I informed the couples about the what, why, and who of CERS. Andrea Siani, Program Coordinator of JF&CS Healthy Families Central Middlesex, described the specific goals of the program. Two young parents shared their experiences of being pregnant teens and then parenting young children while facing the challenges of adolescence.
After the formal presentation, the couples spent over an hour informally chatting with the young parents to learn more about how they found JF&CS. They also discussed the young parents’ hopes for the future now that they are in school and exchanged stories about parenting young children.
