Parent information night set for March 27 at Lehman Center in York

March 22, 2012

A parent information night will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27, at the Lehman Center (TLC) in York.

Danielle Kern, a senior at Penn State York majoring in human development and family studies (HDFS), worked on developing this event, which is being held at Central Middle School, 1950 North Hill Road, York, Pa.

The free, public event is part of Kern's internship through the HDFS program under the guidance of faculty member JeanMarie St. Clair-Christman, assistant professor of human development and family studies. Kern will complete her internship in May.

The information night will include presentations by various department heads at the Lehman Center and families will have an opportunity to ask questions about the variety of services the center offers. Services to be discussed include the crisis nursery, available for children up to 6-years-old, which provides a place parents can take children for up to 72 hours when they need a break; the family advocate; parent support groups; and art therapy offered to children up to 18-years-old.

Child care also will be provided during the information session. Those who need childcare during the program should contact Janelle Swartz at or at 717-854-5771, ext. 110.

TLC offers emergency respite care for children (birth through 6-years-old) in a 24-hour crisis nursery, art and play therapy, family advocate services, and parent support groups. TLC is part of the Children’s Aid Society (CAS), which will celebrate 100 years of service to children in 2013. To learn more about CAS, visit the website at online.
