Parent Promise offers voluntary programs that provide parents like you with educational resources and support to help gain confidence in your parenting skills. Parents receives one-on-one support, guidance and resources to develop a nurturing home and strengthen their family, whether it be in the form of parenting advice, child development exercises or emotional support.
We want to provide resources and guidance to help you grow as a parent and provide a loving and nurturing environment for your child. Because all of our programs are free and voluntary, parents can start or end services at any time.
Scheduled at the parents’ convenience, our programming is family-focused and tailored to your needs. Trained Family Parent Educators provide developmental tools and tips for you to use in age-appropriate play. We also provide books and other educational activities so parents can become their child’s first teacher and prepare them to enter school ready to learn.
To help further reduce parent stress, we connect families with additional community resources that provide for needed baby items, immunizations, food and other necessities and assistance with WIC and TANF services.
At Parent Promise we do not forget about our parents. We want to empower you to become independent and able to take charge of your own rewarding journey as a parent. We will assist you in returning to and graduating from school, earning a GED, acquiring a skill through career technology training programs and improving employment opportunities.
Call or contract us through the website today to see if you qualify for one of our programs.
We strengthen families through parent education and support.
In 1988, Parent Promise was founded by members of the Exchange Club of Oklahoma City service organization and opened its doors as The Exchange Club Center.
In 2001, the Center expanded its services to include public education about parenting and child development, community awareness and parent support services to make available parenting and family resources to all parents in our community.
Since its inception, Parent Promise has helped more than 6,500 Oklahoma families provide loving and nurturing homes for their children so they may have happy childhoods and grow into independent adults who contribute to their communities.
Today, Parent Promise is supported by three local Exchange Clubs, the Exchange Club of Oklahoma City, the Downtown Exchange Club of Oklahoma City and the Edmond Exchange Club, as well as the Oklahoma State Department of Health and numerous foundations and individual community members. The organization is accredited by the National Exchange Club and is accredited by and recognized as the Oklahoma Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America.
We believe every child has a fundamental right to grow, play and learn in a safe and nurturing environment so they have every opportunity in life to succeed. It is because of this belief that we are committed to supporting the public awareness campaigns and activities of Prevent Child Abuse America.
In an effort to celebrate children and their right to grow, learn and play in safe, loving and nurturing environments, April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. As the Oklahoma Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, Parent Promise works with businesses, associations and organizations each April to raise awareness by honoring Oklahoma’s children with pinwheel gardens throughout the month.
