Our Team

Our team consists of child development workers, case managers, certified adult educators, and administrative staff who have been trained by the Maryland Family Network to provide excellent family support services. We take a strengths-based approach to everything we do, and we work with parents to set goals for what they would like to achieve by attending our program with their children.

The Maryland Family Network has been leading family support centers around the state since 1986 by providing grant support, training, and technical assistance.  The Carroll County Family Support Center has been a proud member of this network since 1992.
