PA Winslow Based Programs
Community Based Parent Education
Parent education classes are offered throughout the state in the communities where our clients live. The classes are always taught with evidence based materials that have been proven effective.
At times the entire family, including children, adolescents, teens, extended family members, and adoptive and foster parents are invited to attend.
The parent education classes can be life changing for the members as they learn positive and collaborative methods to best deal with their children and parents.
PA operates two Healthy Families programs. Healthy Families is an internationally recognized program that has been proven to reduce child abuse in the families involved.
Healthy Families is operated in 40 states within the United States and three countries. It is an intensive support program for at-risk families with newborns through the age of five.
The main purpose of the program is to help the entire family get off to a healthy start. Healthy Families promotes positive parenting, successful child development, excellent child health and any other issue that contributes to a thriving family environment.
Community Based After School Program
Parenting AZ operates an after school program for at risk children called Safe Haven, the program is run in the same housing community in which the children live.
