A wide range of programs and services outlines the scope of CBMLC. Different projects aimed at child development and family support guide the policies and helps in defining the future goals for the organization. These programs serve as development projects that the organization undertakes to improve its environment and provide better learning facilities to its members. Following are some of the programs and services that CBMLC provides to children, youth and parents:
Healthy Families DC Program
This program is primarily focused on young mothers and supports them in raising their kids and infants. Working in collaboration with five of other community-based organizations (CBOs), CBMLC provides home visitation and family-focused services to mothers with young children or new-born babies. Currently, 44 mothers are benefiting from this program.
Early Childhood Program
This program was launched in November 2001. Focused on infants and toddlers, it provides full day infant-care services to kids of age between 3-36 months. It includes feeding, looking after and other miscellaneous services that an infant or toddler needs.
This program is designed for the kids of ages between two to five years. By enrolling in this program, kids are provided with guarding and teaching services from 7 A.M to 6 P.M. With the help of this program, young children learn and participate in different interesting activities that are necessary for their physical and mental growth.
School Age/Youth Programs
Especially designed for the children between five to fifteen years of age, this program offers different services for a healthy school and after-school routines.
This is one of the most important programs of CBMLC. It combines all the families that are served by the organization and builds a close network by organizing parenting seminars, family counseling and social referrals. These activities help parents as well as kids form associations with other members and foster a strong sense of community.
CDA Training Program
This is a special program for the assistance of 58 community and staff members to obtain Child Development Associate credentials. These documents and credentials are important for forming collaborations with National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
