MFC is a great option for busy or working moms and helps remove barriers to receiving services for those where home visitation is not an option. The program is staffed with social workers with the capacity to serve up to 200 families. All mobile family coaches have received the required Parents as Teachers training and are certified as PAT Approved Curriculum Users.
