Community Partners


The Children's Center partners with the following community organizations to provide training and ensure the children and families we serve have all the resources they need to lead happy and healthy lives.
 

Allies with Families

The Children's Center has worked closely with this agency due to its focus on parental support and intervention. The Children's Center routinely provides training on early childhood development, psychiatric disorders affecting young children, and parent training workshops for their parent advocates. Additionally, we integrated Allies with Families into our statewide training program to help train parent advocates for families with young children throughout Utah.

National Child Traumatic Stress Network

In September 2009, The Children's Center was awarded a three-year, $1.2 million federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This extraordinary recognition of the quality and breadth of our clinical services provided the training and support to include The Children's Center as a member of the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative. This affiliation effectively establishes us as a nationally known Trauma Center for families with very young children. Our program is called the Safety Net Program for Families with Young Children.
