Parent Mentor Program
The Parent Mentor Program is designed to empower parents with skills for successful parenting.
The Parent Mentor Program is a nationally recognized parenting and family-strengthening program for ALL families. PMP is an evidenced-based, home-visitation program found to help parents improve their understanding of child development, parent more effectively, improve their ability to identify and manage situational stress, strengthen their social support networks, and increase their ability to identify, find, and access services to meet their family’s basic needs.
Through a partnership with a professionally trained Parent Mentor, parents are supported in developing the capacity and confidence they need to nurture the social and emotional development of their children, giving them a strong start toward future success.
The program is offered to families in DuPage and parts of Kane counties at NO COST, who have at least one child under 12 years of age.
