Cow Creek foundation grant expands parent education opportunities in Douglas County
More Douglas County families will be able to benefit from parenting education opportunities, thanks to a grant from the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation to the Douglas County Early Childhood Planning Coalition.
The foundation awarded $7,500 to the Parenting Hub on June 23. The money will be used to implement parenting education programming throughout Douglas County in the 2015-16 school year.
In the 2014-15 school year, the Parenting Hub offered 25 education opportunities in Douglas County, with more than 300 parents and caregivers participating. These funds will help the Parenting Hub to offer more classes and workshops throughout the calendar year.
“We aim to help families create a healthy, nurturing home environment where their children can grow, thrive, and be successful. These funds will translate into more classes, more workshops, and more chances for Douglas County parents and caregivers to learn ways to help their children flourish,” said Kat Wolcott, parent engagement and education program facilitator for the Parenting Hub.
The Parenting Hub is a program of the South-Central Oregon Early Learning Hub, which is administered by Douglas ESD.
