MITCHELL-YANCEY HEALTHY FAMILIES
We have been providing quality services to families in the Mitchell and Yancey Communities since May of 2012. Our home visitors use evidence-based curricula. Our primay is Growing Great Kids by Great Kids, Inc. in addition to numerous supplemental curricula. We offer a wide range of resources on specific parenting topics and all of our staff are intensively trained in a variety of social and developmental areas (including but not limited to: Maternal Depression, Substance Abuse, Infant and Toddler Development, Car Seat Safety).
Mitchell Yancey is funded by the Department of Public Health through Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting funds.
Additionally, funding for this program was provided by The Yancey Fund and The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina. The Yancey Fund is an endowment created to support the charitable needs of our community. The Yancey Fund is an affiliate of The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, a nonprofit serving eighteen counties in Western North Carolina that inspires philanthropy and mobilizes resources to enrich lives and communities in Western North Carolina. The Foundation is a permanent regional resource that facilitated $18 million in charitable giving last year. More information can be found at www.cfwnc.org.
