Catholic Charities Atlanta’s Parent Talk Program serves to educate, strengthen and support pregnant and parenting families to raise their children in a safe and healthy environment so that they may achieve their full potential.
We serve a diverse mix of clients (adults and teens), that are high-risk expectant parents, new parents and other caregivers/guardians raising infants. Services focus on family support, child development, and early interventions.
All services are provided in the client’s home. Family preservation services are provided to families to prevent removal of children from their home or prevent re-entry into foster care.
“This program has changed my life for the better. I was motivated to take care of myself and give my daughter a better life. We have overcome struggles that couldn’t have without the support and advice from this program. I have learned a lot about being a parent, as well as the importance of taking care of oneself. I am on a great path now.” -Megan from College Park, Ga
