Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a home visiting program designed to build strong communities, thriving families, and children who are healthy, safe, and ready to succeed. PAT services include personal visits from a parent educator at least twice monthly; monthly group connections with other PAT families; screenings and assessments to identify developmental concerns; and connections to outside resources that families may need to succeed.
At Parents as Teachers, we take a holistic approach to strengthening families. Through our evidence-based early childhood home visiting model, we provide services to pregnant women and families with children from birth through kindergarten.
