Now one year into operations of the Creating Healthy Bonds (CHB) program, the Montgomery County Collaboration Council is proud of the work our partners (Family Services, Inc., YMCA, and the City of Rockville) have brought to the county. CHB provides supportive services to families in Montgomery County that have been impacted by incarceration. CHB is designed to serve children of incarcerated parents. It provides counseling support, parenting and case management services in the community for children, caregivers, and ultimately the incarcerated parents upon their release. In addition, CHB provides parallel programming in the form of support and parenting education/ coaching to parents placed in the Montgomery County Correctional facility.
CHB's comprehensive wrap-around services include:
* Individual and family counseling services for youth ages 5-18 years old
* Case management services for caregivers
* Parenting support groups for female inmates at Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF)
* Caregiver Support Groups
* Recreational activities for children and caregivers
