To increase parent knowledge of early childhood development and improve parenting practices; provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues; prevent child abuse and neglect; increase children's school readiness and school success.
What we do
- Serve expectant mothers and families with infants.
- Provide culturally-competent, family-centered services. Our Parents Educators are committed to providing services that embrace and celebrate the richness of all cultures within families. While acknowledging that families have challenges, Parent Educators work with the strengths of each family to manage those challenges.
- Link families with a wide variety of community resources including medical homes. Parent Educators can link expectant mothers with a medical home for their prenatal care. After the birth of a child, Parent Educators work with parents to make sure the child is receiving his or her well-child visits and is up-to-date on hearing, vision, and developmental screenings and immunizations.
- Provide families with fun developmentally appropriate activities to do with their children both during and after visits.
