Franklin Healthy Start Mission
To Provide support services to families in your community to create and sustain safe and healthy communities.
The Healthy Start Program works in conjunction with the Center for Human Services agency to provide mental health services to our students. Our office has a counselor two days a week. If you feel that your children are in need of this type of services, ask the office of Healthy Start or consult with your child’s teacher.

The Incredible Years
This program is a 10-week program designed to assist parents who have children exhibiting difficult behaviors at home, at school or both.
This support group meets every first and third Friday of the month and is available to all parents of Franklin. This group is a good way for parents to learn about services that are available to families throughout the community. The Parent Café is also a good way to communicate their concerns about their children or the needs of the community. We invite all parents to participate in this group since is a good way to learn and meet other parents in the school. We offer free coffee and bread for each meeting. This group is offered in English and Spanish.
Healthy Start has a clothes closet for the community. We accept donations of clothing for adults and especially for children. Anyone in the community is welcome to visit the clothes closet or donate clothes.
