Parent-Child-Home-ProgramParent-Child Home Program (PCHP) envisions a world where every child enters school ready to succeed because every parent has the knowledge and resources to build school readiness where it starts: the home. Since 1965, our nationwide network of program sites has been working one-on-one with under-resourced parents to provide the necessary tools to help their children thrive in school and in life. Almost 50 years of research shows that the program effectively improves school readiness and increases participants’ high school graduation rates by over 30% - to the same level as their middle income peers.
