Parent Empowerment Institute

Parent Empowerment Institute

The mission of the Parent Empowerment Institute (PEI) is to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and abilities of parents and caregivers in order to sustain in families and prevent child abuse/neglect in our community.

PEI will provide workshops on a wide variety of skills to support parents, grandparents, foster parents, and other caregivers, with the goal of preventing child abuse before it occurs. These programs are particularly helpful for caregivers coping with the challenges of parenting children with few community programs or resources available due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PEI program is part of LCCS’ strategic plan, which includes a commitment to reducing the number of children in foster care.
