Parenting Education Mapping Report

5/8/2009 Report

The Oregon Community Foundation believes that all parents can benefit from education programs that help them build strong family relationships and do the best job they can as their children’s first and most important teachers.  OCF also believes that every Oregon community should have a range of parenting education and support services for parents of all circumstances.

The Oregon Community Foundation and The Ford Family Foundation jointly commissioned Oregon State University’s College of Health and Human Sciences to produce a report on the current status of parenting education programs in Oregon.
