Mission Statement

Parent Services Project engages and strengthens families to take leadership for the well-being of their children, families, and communities. We believe that families are leaders in their children’s programs, schools and communities, where they are part of building equitable partnerships based on mutual respect. Families’ engagement and leadership creates social change and equity for all, and as a result, all children develop to their fullest potential surrounded by a caring community.


When Ethel Siederman founded Parent Services Project in 1980, she created a nonprofit agency that would quickly rise to become nationally recognized on the strength of its unique organizational model. By providing whole family programming and engagement, PSP was built to support more than individuals: it strengthens whole family units, guiding them to lead for the well-being of their children, and for the larger community, too. Each of PSP’s programs- Raising a Reader, Leaders for Change, Aprendiendo Juntos and Impact Technology -is a testament to the wisdom of Ethel’s original vision: with the right foundation, families become leaders; our schools and communities create more equitable partnerships rooted in mutual respect; and children reap the benefits, as they rise to their fullest potential surrounded by caring and newly engaged communities.

Today, we continue to carry Ethel’s vision and spirit forward. PSP’s commitment to its original mission has strengthened, and new collaborations with valued partners are underway. Through these partnerships, PSP has vowed to participate in the critical work of designing a more equitable educational system in Marin. One that lifts up those of us left behind, and holds existing systems accountable for this work.
