Parenting Support Services

Supporting families with children ages 0-17.

Reinforced by more than 30 years of ongoing research, as well as access to two evidence-based models – Triple P and Circle of Security Parenting – McCall’s Parenting Support Services is one of the most effective parenting programs in the world. 

What it does

Our free in-home, evidence-based program is designed to help parents and caregivers:

  • Identify their parenting strengths and challenges
  • Build their independence, resourcefulness, and problem-solving skills
  • Create positive and safe home environments 
  • Support their child’s emotional, behavioral, and cognitive strengths

How it works

Parents and caregivers participate in weekly two-hour home visits for sixteen weeks with a trained and accredited Parent Educator. Beginning with a thorough assessment, the curriculum may be used to target a broad range of behaviors, and the parents and caregivers may choose the target behavior(s) to be addressed.
