Parents for Parents Program

The Parents for Parents Program is designed to lend support to parents who have had their children removed from their care by Child Protective Services (CPS). The Program utilizes parents, who have successfully navigated the CPS system and have reunified with their children, to support parents who are currently involved in dependencies. The Parents for Parents Program refers to these successfully reunified birth parents as parent allies. There are three main elements of the program: Support from a parent ally at dependency court hearings as well as a two-hour educational class called Dependency 101 and ongoing Dependency 201 educational classes.
