Claire Davis, Healthy Families Supervisor/Program Manager
I joined Birth To Three (now Parenting Now! (PN!) in 2001. I don’t remember how I heard about the organization; it seems like everyone I talked to about wanting to work with parents and children in Eugene referred me to Birth To Three.
My favorite thing about PN! is that the organization invests in and supports staff personally and in our work. I started out by facilitating the parenting group Make Parenting A Pleasure, then answering calls on the Parent Helpline, working in the volunteer program with students, and in 2005, I finally landed in Healthy Families, bringing parent support to families in their homes. I became the Healthy Families Supervisor/Program Manager three years later.
I am still madly in love with Parenting Now! and Healthy Families. I have made lifelong friends and colleagues at PN! who supported me as I have grown personally and professionally through the years. Healthy Families staff are living their passion for supporting families every day, and my job is to support their work. We are an evidence-based program, nationally accredited with Healthy Families America, and we are proud that we carry out our work to fidelity. The services we bring to families change challenging generational patterns by supporting parents to make positive choices for themselves and their children.
