Next in our education series we would like to spotlight Jericho Road Ministries and their Parent-Child Home Program. Jericho Road Ministries helps with wellness and self-sufficiently for refugees and low-income people in our community. The Parent-Child Program is available for children between 18 months and 4 years old.
Home visitors come over and meet with the child and their guardian twice every week for half an hour and bring a new book or toy with them that can be used for the child’s development. These visitors bring resources to the family over a period of one year, not only helping the child but helping the parents become better educators, which in turn assist in providing long-term educational success for the child.
This program is part of a nationwide Parent-Child Home Program which has been active for over 40 years and helps approximately 70 families a year!*
