Programs

At Parent Promise, we offer a variety of education and support programs to help parents provide a loving and healthy home for their children. Parent Promise also collaborates with local community partners to provide a safe and nurturing community where our children can grow and have great childhoods. All of our programs are positive, voluntary and family focused. They help to increase parental mastery and decrease parental stress and anxiety. We know the challenges and joys of being a parent, and we know we all have a role in supporting our children.

Parent Promise takes a whole-family approached with our three evidence-based home visiting models. With all of our programs, a Parent Educator schedules regular one-on-one appointments with the family at the family’s convenience to help guide parents through fun, interactive play, games and exercises that promote healthy child development and safe and nurturing home environments. Families may also be connected with additional community resources, such as job training and child care.


Parents as Teachers

For families in their 29th week of pregnancy and beyond, or who have children between 0-5. The program provides free and voluntary services that teach positive parenting skills and connects families with resources that help strengthen the family structure. Upon enrollment, a trained professional Parent Educator works with the parent(s) or primary caregiver(s) to ensure they have the knowledge, tools and support necessary to ensure they can provide a loving and nurturing home environment where their child can grow, learn and play.

The program focuses on teaching parenting skills and proper mental, physical, emotional and developmental child growth. Families also may be connected with additional community resources such as job training and child care. At Parent Promise we use both the Parents as Teachers home-based family support program model and the unique, evidence-based parent education curriculum and tools to support parents in their role of preparing their child to enter school on grade level, ready to learn.
