About Thriving Germantown
Thriving Germantown Community HUB is a multi-generational, multi-sector care coordination program connecting families with services and resources that benefit them in school, at home, and in their communities. Thriving Germantown was developed to alleviate barriers and reduce the impact of poverty in the Germantown area, starting with the families at the Captain James E. Daly Elementary School (DES) Community.
Our experienced, compassionate family service coordinators provide support to the children and families in the DES community, helping families secure needed resources and navigate the complexities of the community, health, and social service systems.
Having Thriving Germantown as part of the DES community is an asset to everyone in the school. Our program:
Assures safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments for all DES children and families;
Improves academic achievement for students attending DES; and
Improves health outcomes for children and their families.
We meet our students and families at their level, building trusting and culturally respectful relationships in their homes and communities, where they are comfortable. Our services are multi-lingual so our families can communicate effectively and take advantage of all that we have to offer.
