Our Philosophy


A family is a unit of interdependent and interacting persons, related together over time by strong social and emotional bonds and/or ties of marriage, birth and adoption. The family’s central purpose is to create, maintain and promote the social, mental, physical and emotional development and well being of each of its members. Linking Families & Communities holds the philosophy that to support our families we believe that prevention of factors, which cause children to be at risk, will help assure that the health, shelter, social/emotional and intellectual needs of every child will be met. This prevention philosophy is built upon these principles:

  • Each family has strengths and is responsible for a child’s well-being and development

  • Each family has a right to access quality services that support self-sufficiency

  • Early intellectual stimulation of children is critical

  • Each child has a right to be safe, healthy, educated and nurtured

  • Every child has the right to quality, accessible and affordable child care

  • All adults in the community have the responsibility of nurturing children

Linking Families and Communities accepts charitable contributions to improve the lives of children age 0-5 and their families in the Calhoun, Pocahontas and Webster County area. One hundred percent of every dollar donated to Linking Families and Communities will support and enhance early childhood services and programs in the three county area. We appreciate the opportunity you give us to help improve the lives of children.
