Parent Teacher Home Visits

High Impact Student, Teacher and Family Engagement

What if the most important adults in a child’s life were on the same page, working together toward the student’s success? Parent Teacher Home Visits build relationships, skills, and engagement for families, educators, and students from pre-K to 12th grade. We were started by parents, community organizers and teachers in order to stop the cycle of blame and catalyze real relationships between home and school — all in support of our common goal, our kids’ success.

Testimonials

"Together we have conducted over 300 Home Visits to our Kindergarten Families. This project has changed the way we teach the kids.  We have a deeper connection to the family and the student, allowing us to better teach the child.  For some of our families, we have opened the door for them to again trust the school system."
