INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- Whole Child Indian River County relocated to an office at the United Way of Indian River County. Previously, the program was housed at the Junior League of Indian River's headquarters at Dyer Mazda.
"We are grateful for United Way's support of the program by allowing us the use of one of their incubation offices," said Kelley Williams, Whole Child's executive director.
"The centrally located office provides greater visibility and makes it easier for people to locate us. It's a great space to meet with providers and families."
An initiative of the Junior League of Indian River, Whole Child connects families to much-needed programs and resources through a confidential, web-based program.
"Indian River County is rich in services to meet the diverse needs of the families who reside here, but parents often don't know what's available or how to access help," said Tiffany Sweeney, league president.
"Whole Child makes it easy for families to get connected."
Whether in need of health care, educational programs or enrichment activities, parents can find them all in one place. Through a six-dimensional assessment, Whole Child assists parents in identifying their needs and connects them with service providers in the community. The program is free, accessible 24-hours a day and confidential.
The Junior League of Indian River is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The organization reaches out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.
