A variety of services are provided to the Hispanic community in Middle Tennessee by Catholic Charities of Tennessee, Inc.'s Hispanic Services programs. Basic needs, healthcare, case management, interpreter services and assistance is provided by our Family Services program. "Stimulating the birth and growth of low cost, parent-to-parent interventions that improve health and child development for low income families" is offered through the Maternal Infant Health Outreach Worker (MIHOW) Program. Their needs are also assessed and their strengths grown upon. ESL classes in conjuncture with other organizations and institutions are available. Family Learning & Nurturing ELL Groups are offered for pre-school children between the ages of 3-5 and their mothers, where they learn the necessary skills for childhood development, basic education and family life. These groups aide us in meeting our goal of enabling Hispanic families to have the information and resources necessary for their children's success in school.
