Help Strengthen Families and Support #Great Childhoods During the Month of April
April 1 @ 8:00 am - April 30 @ 5:00 pm
April is the month that we recognize the need to create #GreatChildhoods for all children. Unfortunately, there are many vulnerable families in Oklahoma that face challenges in raising their children in a positive environment. You can help Parent Promise reach more families with our in-home parent education and support programs by participating in one or more activities during the month of April.
On a daily basis, we work with at-risk, expectant and new parents to help strengthen their parenting skills and help them to provide a safe, loving and nurturing home environment for their children through free and voluntary in-home education and support. However, state funding challenges are putting these services for families at risk.
Parent Promise is offering a number of opportunities for you to get involved in addressing this issue and stopping child abuse before it can start by strengthening families. We hope you will participate in as many of these opportunities as possible
• We will kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month with a luncheon at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club on March 29. Empowering Families – Inspiring Hope is the theme of the luncheon, which is free to attend; however, attendees will be asked to make a donation to Parent Promise following an inspiring program. Please register to attend the luncheon.
• You can participate in our annual Casual 4 Kids t-shirt campaign by ordering our T-shirt to wear during the month of April. T-shirts are $15 each, and we are taking pre-orders for the shirts through March 1. A t-shirt sneak peak, order form and even a sponsorship form to get your company name or logo on the shirts is available below. If you want to sponsor the t-shirt, please send in the sponsorship form by Feb. 23.
• Your organization can publicly recognize Child Abuse Prevention Month by planting a Pinwheel Garden during the month of April. Your company may purchase official Child Abuse Prevention pinwheels and a sign to display with your pinwheel garden. An order form is available below. Please order by Feb. 16.
Please help us continue to fight for vulnerable children and families by participating with us with in one or all of these opportunities. Your support helps fund our in-home parent education and support and advocacy efforts on behalf of these families. In-home parent education and support has a 93% effective rate in keeping families out of more expensive state services. It is a wise and needed investment in raising healthy children.
