Parent Education Enhancement Brochure

We have served 421 parents this past year through our  Parenting Education Enhancement Program. We currently offer more than 15 unique parenting education curricula.

This year we have supported 17 Adolescent Parents and 11 children with our APP. 
Watch this video for more information about what our program has to offer.


PEER's Adolescent Parenting Program (APP) works to support parenting and pregnant teens through 1 on 1 and group services. Our staff uses the Parents as Teachers curriculum to develop our teens as parents by teaching them about parent-child interactions, development-centered parenting behaviors, and skills to develop their family well-being. Teens earn points through their participation in the program that they can spend on donated items to support themselves and their family.

Before we can schedule a child's first visit we would need our intake application and demographic form completely filled out, a copy of the birth certificate, updated shot record and a copy of the guardians photo ID.
