NTI Poster 003Martha’s Place provides mandated, evidence based services to our children ages 0 to 5 who are at risk due to abuse, neglect or prenatal drug and alcohol exposure. Because of brain development during that time, it is crucial that children birth to five be evaluated medically/developmentally as well as social/emotionally. The staff at Martha’s Place – public health nurses, pediatricians, and mental health therapists – are specialized in working with infants and toddlers.
