The Dianne DeVanna Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect was founded in 1978 after the death of 11-year-old Dianne DeVanna. The Center was formed to provide intensive, non-judgmental, and responsive supports to parents/caretakers/guardians who are experiencing parenting challenges. We understand the pressures, stressors, and frustrations of parenting and by offering the Parent Aide service we will provide you with practical, hands-on, intensive, and goal-oriented supports so that you and your family can live and grow together.
Parent Aides work with families supported by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and as a team we are committed to providing parenting skills, education on child(ren) development needs, and assisting parents in working towards reunification when needed.
