Our Program: Parent Aide
Parent aides are professionall trained individuals who become a friend adn role model to parents who need help in dealing with life’s daily challenges. Parent Aides provide support and encouragement and address the special needs of the family. They help parents build confidence, self-esteem and coping skills. Many parents benefit by understanding the developmental needs of their children, while learning how to manage their home environment more effectively. Parent aides alo teach parents how to make social contacts and to use community resources.
As supportive, caring individuals, parent aides often make the critical difference  in enabling parents to succeed.
