Child Abuse Prevention

Project H.O.P.E.S

 

​The HOPES program helps stop child abuse before it happens.  By teaching parents and caregivers parenting skills and helping them build the support structure they need, program participants are able to handle life's difficulties and address problem behaviors in children before they lead to abuse and neglect.

 

HOPES offers evidence-based parent education and support for families who have children 0-5 years of age who are considered at-risk for child abuse and neglect. HOPES services are provided at no cost to program participants.
