Using an evidence-based curriculum, Somali-speaking, trained parent educators will partner with parents/caregivers to provide twice monthly home visits, group learning sessions, and resource connections to help “children develop, learn and grow to realize their full potential.”
Why Parents as Teachers?

- Low income P.A.T. families were more likely to read to their children.
- P.A.T. children had a 22% decreased likelihood of child maltreatment substantiations.
