Inasmuch Foundation approves $25,000 grant for Parent Promise

Parent Promise is excited to announce that Inasmuch Foundation has approved a $25,000 grant to Parent Promise in support of its expansion of home visiting services to more families in Oklahoma County.

Parent Promise offers three evidence-based models to help vulnerable families build resiliency and provide a positive, safe and loving home environment for their children. The grant will specifically support the expansion of the Healthy Families America program to families with children 0-5 and the Exchange Parent Aide program for families with children older than 5.

“Parent Promise is grateful for the support of the Inasmuch Foundation,” said Sherry Fair, executive director. “By expanding our services and offering more home visitation models, we are able to better serve families with the specific programs that best meet their needs and get families on track to self-sustainability and success.”

Parent Promise provides trained parent educators to deliver voluntary, in-home parent education and support to families who may be facing a number of challenges in providing a safe, loving and nurturing environment for their children. The services are free to families and focus on child development, health and safety, positive parent-child interactions and connecting families to other resources they need. Parent Promise also works with families to keep children on track for success in school.
