Parent-Child Home Program benefits for life – Benefits for all

By United Way of King County Posted on December 21, 2016 In Helping Students Graduate, News

The Parent-Child Home Program is a winner for early learners in Seattle and beyond. At United Way of King County we’ve always thought that, so that’s where we put a lot of our efforts.

When parents are their children’s best teachers, kids benefit when they start school and the benefits keep rolling on to adulthood. And that is exactly what the Parent-Child Home Program does for struggling, low-income families. It teaches parents how to be good teachers to their kids.

That’s why we are so excited to see the latest article in the Seattle Times touting the long-term benefits that the Parent-Child Home Program has for its participants. It spells out how it helps close the education gap for low income families.

For a community that’s trying to make success in terms of educational disparity, this model is really a strong approach ~ Jason Gortney Director at the Children’s Home Society of Washington

It’s easy to see success of the Parent-Child Home Program in the Times’ chart below.
