Advocates for Children’s home visitation program is designed to support families and children. This program is free and open to any parents or caretakers in the community. The program gives caregivers simple and practical strategies to help them confidently manage their children’s behavior, prevent problems developing and build strong, healthy relationships.

Our Hope in Your Home program focuses on two curricula: Parents as Teachers (PAT) and Positive Parenting Program (Triple-P).

The Triple-P curriculum focuses on social and behavioral development and the issues that can arise in these areas. This curriculum provides parents with skills, strategies, and confidence to sustain family management upon completion of the program. The aim is to create a positive, nurturing environment that will allow the family to grow together. The Triple-P curriculum is open to families with children 16 years old and younger.

The PAT curriculum is an evidence-based curriculum that uses physical, social, and emotional screenings and activity-centered lessons to positively impact child development. Parents as Teachers is a two-year curriculum serving families with children from prenatal through age 3 who wish to participate.
