Keeping children safe and families strong!
Parenting is one of the toughest and most important jobs we will ever do, and we all have a stake in the outcome. Research shows that parents who have the tools, resources and support they need are more likely to raise safe, healthy and productive children.
Towards that end, ICARE offers an array of best-practice parenting classes including Nurturing Parenting and Nurturing Fathers. These classes are offered at Transitional Housing and in elementary schools around Kootenai County. Additionally we host a fun and engaging parent support group. A best-practice child sexual abuse prevention class available as well.
The heart of the ICARE Program is our Home Visits. Our nationally certified parent educators can do a series of individualized Home Visits to better meet the needs of specific high risk families. Strengthening families benefits us all.
The ICARE Program is dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect and committed to making Kootenai County a better, safe place for our most precious resources – our children.
Housed at the new H.E.L.P. Center, 201 E. Harrison Ave., ICARE also has resources for children and families and offers links to other community resources.
