We know that the social and emotional well-being of our children is, in large part, connected to the health of their home environment. That’s why United Way’s Healthy Parenting Initiative trains childcare workers and parent educators, providing the skills they need to ensure that parents are equipped with the knowledge to parent effectively. The program also trains clinicians from a range of specialties to collectively address clinical and behavioral needs of children 0 to 5.
Children with this support structure around them from the start are less likely to be held back or need special education services, and are more likely to complete high school and become successful, productive adults.
