Whole Families Program (WFP): PFA embraces the One Health approach, which recognizes that the health of people, animals, and our shared environment are interdependent. This philosophy informed the creation of our Whole Families Program. The WFP expands the traditional veterinary focus on the animal to include the human family members and their life circumstances. PFA’s Social Worker works with the family to connect them to human social services to resolve challenges such as housing insecurity, mental health issues, domestic violence, or food insecurity. Talking to pet parents about their family’s needs and worries allows early intervention and helps keep Whole Families together. If you have questions about our WFP please email Lori@pfaonline.org
