Parents as Teachers Home-Visiting Program is a strong evidence-based home visiting model providing parenting education, family support, and referrals to community resources.  At its core, Parents as Teachers is relationship-based and parenting-focused. Our approach and curriculum focus on parent-child interaction, development-centered parenting, and family well-being; on strengths, capabilities, and skills. We serve a range of families with high needs—not just first time parents, pregnant parents or teen parents—and offer services from the prenatal stage through kindergarten entry. To qualify for services, the family must live in Bernalillo or Valencia counties.

For providers, you can send a referral form by scanning and email it to ddonado@unmmg.org or you can fax it to 505-272-8988: ATTN: Parents as Teachers
