Project HOPES (Healthy Outcomes through Prevention and Early Support) is an evidence-based prevention program designed to increase protective factors in families, with children 0-5 years of age, who are considered at risk for child abuse and neglect. Services are designed to be provided to adult or adolescent primary caregivers with children 0-5 years of age or to a primary caregiver that is expecting a child identified as having at least two (2) high risk indicators for child abuse and/or neglect. The Project HOPES Program uses the SafeCare Curriculum. This curriculum is strength-based and focuses on improving positive parent-child interactions, improved health decision-making, and parental supervision of children.
Referrals to community services, curriculum-based education provided to caregivers in their homes, prevention counseling, and case management.
