FOSTERING HEALTHY PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS
Onward Hope's Parent Aide Program receives the "Green Light" from the Department of Child Safety after it's recent audit regarding services provided in 2019. Our reunification rate of 47% was highest of all the parent aide service providers statewide.
The Parent Aide Program is a reunification support program for biological parents whose children have been removed from their care by the state. It is a six-month program that helps to increase the success rate of reunification as well as decrease the possibility of recidivism.
Our experienced staff help educate parents on the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional capacities of parenting through skill-building sessions as well as provide four hours of supervised visitation between the parents and their children every week. Ms. Jacqueline Everett, Parent Aide Program Manager, would like to acknowledge her staff for a job well done, especially amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic.
