• 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.

    Our Goals:

    Prevent child abuse and neglect

    Increase parent knowledge of early childhood development

    Improve parenting practices

    Provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues

    Increase children's school readiness and success

    Improve the overall health and well-being of families with young children
