Parents As Teachers Home Visits featured on Fox43

Our Family Center program, Parents As Teachers, was recently featured on Fox 43! And in the words of Teresa Miller, Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Human Services, “Kids don’t come with an instruction manual and we don’t have all the answers. Home visiting is here to make sure you’re on track.”

We are here for you and your family! Our certified parent educators provide in-home visits to families offering health, vision, and developmental screenings of children, one-on-one support for parents and families, and a support network linking them to community resources. This evidence-based program improves parent’s /caregiver’s knowledge of early childhood development and improves parenting practices, provides early detection of developmental delays and health issues, prevents child abuse and neglect, and increases children’s school readiness and success. PAT is available to any family with a child – kindergarten age or younger – even expectant parents.
