Resources for Families
DEC connects families with young children to city-funded services and supports. Below, you can find resources to help you with child care, parenting support, and child development.
DEC is a new city department. We will be expanding our services over time. We are also working on making our website into a comprehensive resource for families. We appreciate your patience as we make progress. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Get Parenting Support
DEC-supported Family Resource Centers offer families parenting support, information, and referrals.
Check your child's development
