Nurturing parenting program

The Nurturing Parenting Program is an evidence-based and trauma informed program that provides in-home parent education and support to families involved with the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services. 

The goals are to:

  • Provide family engagement to assist in learning new 

       parenting prospective, examine parenting and

       relationship beliefs, and increase knowledge and skills;

  • Work to modify and eliminate beliefs and actions that

       contribute to abusive parenting behaviors; 

  • Increase parents' knowledge of age-appropriate 

       expectations, and 

  • Assist parents in recognizing how to enhance their skills in supporting attachments, nurturing, and healthy parenting. 

A biological parent or family member who has an open case with Illinois DCFS and meets referral requirements is eligible to participate in the Nurturing Parenting Program. A Bethany can manager makes a referral for the program. The length of the program varies depending on the clients needs, but may run from eight to 24 weeks.
