Chicago Parent Program

Supporting Parents through Early Childhood Development Programming
The Fund coordinates and manages the Chicago Parent Program, a 12-session, early-childhood development parenting program in elementary Baltimore City Public Schools. The evidence-based program supports parents of pre-school age children with effective strategies to reduce child behavioral problems, problem-solve common parenting challenges, and build skills to foster their children’s academic success. The program was developed by a team of researchers from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing with input from parents of young children in Chicago to meet the needs of a culturally and economically diverse audience. The Fund served as the host organization of the initial three-year pilot program and assumed full management and coordination of the program in the fall of 2017.
