Mission Statement

Description

PHP started over thirty years ago as a grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of families by providing support to parents that are experiencing stress and isolation.

PHP's mission is to promote healthy parent/child relationships and break the cycle of child abuse by providing a statewide network of Parent Support Groups and a 24-hour Parental Stress Line.

Support group meetings are co-led by parents and a trained volunteer facilitator. Parents share their difficulties and successes, help each other talk about their frustrations, and explore different ways of dealing with everyday situations. Parents identify problem areas and learn from each other.

The Parental Stress Line takes calls about issues such as parental stress, child development, and better ways to communicate. In addition to providing empathy and support, the Line offers information and referral services for parenting issues.
