Starting Out Right
Important Notice: The Starting Out Right Program has officially concluded its operations as of June 30th, 2023. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the participants, supporters, and partners who contributed to the success of this remarkable initiative.

Available Programs for Teen Parents
Active Parenting: First Five Years
Active Parenting: First Five Years is a parenting education program that works with parents and their children ages 0-5 on relationship improvement, mental health, and child well-being and behavior. Using a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy, the understanding of emotion interacting with a child’s brain, and methods for academic success, our program’s goal is to achieve both kindergarten readiness and household well-being.
