Today, we stand #Together4MO! Parent educators support teenage parents through home visits and bring more than just education we offer hope and encouragement to young families. As we partner with families and teach positive parenting practices we have opportunity to change the trajectory of many lives, this not only strengthens the families we serve but produces a ripple effect that serves the entire community.
Note from a mom:
PAT has been a huge support for me as a young mom. When I got pregnant the only resources I had for any questions regarding my pregnancy and birth were my doctor and family. PAT helped me educate myself on the whole process and made me feel prepared for the next journey of my life. When my baby was born I always had someone to reassure me that I was doing a good job and to provide advice and knowledge about my growing baby. My daughter is 9 months old now and I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through it without my PAT educator and the other parents in the group supporting me!
