I have read their mission and the services they provide, abuse and neglect, adoption, behavioral care, crisis intervention counseling, and family support center. This is a service for Arlington, Texas: a source and example for others to follow. This organization has been in existence since 1915. Their funding partner is the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. This is not necessarily a government agency but it is supported by the state of Texas.

WebMD is a medical consultant group of doctors that give their expertise for your question, and yet they advise seeking a local doctor if the condition is serious. This particular article has lots of information about good nutrition for children and ideas for parents. I have used this website personally and had good information. After consulting my physician, I was encouraged that WebMD is a good resource. My physician said that she would validate WebMD.
The goals and purpose of the ACH Child and Family Services is the ultimate goal and I admire them. I wish I had time to get to that goal. I hope that my CoP will be just a small service that follows their example.

National Alliance for Nutrition & Activity, Retrieved from http://www.cspinet.org/nutritionpolicy/nana.html
This organization advocates policies and programs within the federal government healthy eating and activity to reduce illness, diabetes, and other disabilities and costs that are caused by cancer, heart disease, and blood pressure.
My skills that are needed to provide any services to my ideal community of single parents are communication, advertising, teaching and loving each person contacted. I believe that I have the skill of communication, teaching and loving but will need assistance in advertising or notification of the program and how it is designed to minister.
