Parent University

We care about the happiness of your family. Let us help.


Helping Families Thrive

Creating a healing environment.

Hope Women’s Center is committed to seeing families thrive. They have partnered together to create the “Hope Initiative for Healthy Families” also known as “Parent University”!

The family must first be whole emotionally, spiritually, physically, and mentally. The Hope Initiative for Healthy Families/“Parent University” provides holistic support to women whose children are at risk of entering the foster care system or are currently in the foster care system.
