Parent Education & Support

Cope’s parent education and support program provides parents and caregivers with the support and skills to build strong family relationships. Our goal is to promote healthy families by reducing stress, improving parenting skills, strengthening parent confidence, developing coping skills and building resiliency.

Unless otherwise noted, services are available in English and Spanish. Free childcare and meals are available at many of the classes and groups. Most classes and groups require pre-registration.

Healthy Families ™ Home Visiting Program

Our Healthy Families ™ Home Visiting program helps parents take baby steps towards building a loving, safe and healthy home for their children. This program follows a nationally accreditted and evidence-based model which is rooted in the belief that early, nurturing relationships are the foundation for life-long, healthy development. Parents work with their Family Support Provider during pregnancy and until age five or until the child enters kindergarten. Together, they create goals that build upon the family’s strengths, promote parent-child connectedness and create self-sufficiency. This long-term program gives parents and caregivers the knowledge and tools to ensure their children are nurtured in a loving, safe and engaging environment.
