~We value prevention as a cost effective and efficient strategy for child and family development.

{Our Goals}

~All Central Oregon families have access to high quality, proven parenting education programs.

~All communities in Central Oregon are served by a sustainable collaboration of agencies working together to promote parenting education, reduce duplication and leverage resources.

~Strengthen families and reduce the potential for child abuse and neglect.

~Increase the efficiency and coordination of parenting education resources.

~Raise the awareness of the importance of effective parenting education and promote parenting education as a community norm.

~Parents of Central Oregon expand their parenting skills, strengthen their parent-child relationships and enhance their children’s healthy development, school readiness, academic and life success.


Our success is measured in the number of families and children we help with the quality of programs and services we provide. These programs are fueled by our dedicated staff, caring volunteers and generous donors like you.
