Expectant families with infants can participate in our "Genesis" Prenatal and Parenting program. This program will focus on prenatal health and infant development and parenting skills.

Here is a list of important resources that Allegheny County Provides for families.

If you have other children who are in need of after school or youth programs, considering enrolling them in our Raze Youth Programs. 

Through our partnership with "WAVE", Willisae's Agency for Vision and Empowerment,we will provide support for both renters and homebuyers through budget coaching, personal empowerment planning, credit counseling and special debt management programs.

Financial Assistance

We understand that some families may need help finding quality childcare due to finances.  ELRC is a program  designed to help families to  apply for financial assistance.  You can apply for support through their website.  

 

Emergency Preparedness

ALL staff are trained in Pediatriac First Aid, CPR, Water Safety, Fire Safety.

Children will be evacuated to the Carnegie Boys and Girls Club two blocks away from our facility at 603 Washington Ave in the event of a fire or other unsafe event whereas the Center becomes unsafe.

 

In Place Sheltering

Sudden occurrences, whether or hazardous materials related, many dictate that taking cover inside the building is the best immediate response. We are prepared to shelter in place for several days if necessary. (Let's pray that this never happens). 

 

Mass Evacuation

Total evacuation of the facility may become necessary if there is a danger in the general community. In the case of a mass evacuation order, We will evacuate to a location in Bridgeville, Pa 

 

Modified Operations

It is the policy of GHRM not to close for typical wintery conditions. However, should the building become unsafe (such as a utility outage) or conditions become so severe that staff must be sent home early...an early closing decision would be made.

 

Please listen to WPXI Channel 11 for announcements relating to any of the emergency actions listed above. In addition, our staff will personally telephone every family if any of the above actions must be taken.

 

Please do NOT call the center during the emergency. This will keep the main line telephone free to make emergency calls and relay information. You will be called to let you know that we have taken one of these protective actions. If your child, family member or someone you know has a cell phone, you are free to call those numbers. 

 

A form provided by us, designating persons to pick up your child will be used anytime your child is released during an emergency situation. Please ensure ONLY those persons you list on the form attempt to pick up your child. Keep this form update at all times.

 

We specifically urge you NOT to attempt to make different arrangements during an emergency. This will only create additional confusion and divert staff from their assigned emergency duties.

 Should you have additional questions regarding our emergency operating procedures, contact us directly so that there is absolutely no confusion as to how these emergency plans will be put into operations.
