Who We Support
Integris Right Track Program & Exchange Parent Aide
Award Date: June 6, 2019
The Labor and Delivery Unit at INTEGRIS Baptist has been one of Parent Promise’s largest referral sources for several years. The social services staff at the hospital understands the value of in-home visitation and support and has been a close ally of Parent Promise. This project will assign a trained Parent Promise parent educator to the hospital to work closely with the Labor and Delivery Unit to introduce new families to in-home parent education and support services. Families will receive an in-hospital visit and care/resource package from the parent educator, and an appointment will be set up to make a home visit to that family within one week of hospital dismissal.
The Exchange Parent Aide Program is a home visitation program that serves families with children between ages 0-12. The program provides a professionally trained parent educator to go into the homes of families on a regular, voluntary basis and provide parent education and resources to help families in the areas of child safety, improved parenting skills, improved problem-solving skills for both parents and children and enhanced social support systems. The program is an expansion of the current program provided by Parent Promise, which serves families with very young children between 0-5.
