Parent Support Outreach Program (PSOP)

Parenting can sometimes be a demanding job, especially for parents with young children. If you are pregnant or a parent with a child age 10 or under, and you are having a hard time caring for your child in the way you want to, this program may be right for you. This program is voluntary and focuses on prevention and the family’s strengths and needs.
