Black River Falls Office
Because we all want our children to thrive, Children's Wisconsin offers a variety of programs to help support parents and caregivers. Many of these programs are offered in partnership with local agencies and organizations. Many programs are available in both English and Spanish. The Children’s Wisconsin Black River Falls office offers the following:
Black River Falls Family Resource Center
Parents can find resources and programs and enjoy activities with their children. We offer parenting classes, parent information meetings and parent-child activities. We also offer screening for children ages 4 months to 5 years to see if they may need extra help in some areas. There is no cost to you. See our website for more information.
Healthy Families Western Wisconsin
Healthy Families Western Wisconsin is a free support program. We work with families to promote healthy child growth, help build parenting skills and connect families to local resources. Pregnant and new parents can enroll at any time with a child younger than three months old. Services tailored for the child can be provided until the child reaches age 5. Staff shares parenting and child development information and activity ideas that promote child growth and a strong parent-child bond. Visits can take place in the home, community or at our office. They are wherever is most comfortable and convenient for your family.
