Darkness 2 Light


Parenting Way of IowaParenting Way, Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is: Educating Parents for the Health, Safety and Success of Children and Youth. Services focus on parent education, parent engagement, parent support and children and youth programs. Programs rely on community and local support for the protection of youth and children. Organizational projects include Parents Anonymous, The Parenting Way, Parents As Teachers, Parents of Teens and Teen Support, Teen Focus Series, and Mothers in Prison and Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents.

The Boone County Parents As Teachers project is a Maternal Infant & Early Childhood Home Visiting Program that builds parent skill development and responsibility factors. The PAT program increases a parents investment in the healthy development of their child during the important growth period in a child’s learning and attachment phase of life – prenatal to age 3. The PAT program also increases a parent’s investment if their child’s early learning and education, contributing to a child’s successful preschool phase and future achievement goals – ages 3 to 5 and the voluntary 4 year old preschool programs. The program works to promote healthier families regardless of any cultural barriers or differences.

Early engagement with families is a precursor to successful and ongoing participation in the health and well being of children and positive educational results.
