Parenting Capacity Services

Reach is contracted with Hennepin County to provide Parenting Capacity Services to families with an open Child Protective Services (CPS) case in which parenting education was court-ordered. The focus of this program is to improve the parents’ skills and to improve parent-child interactions. Our Parenting Skills Educators teach skills to improve the well-being of the children and families by strengthening parenting abilities, reducing reports of abuse and neglect, and preventing out of home placements.

Our Parenting Skills Educators provide education on many parenting skills, such as: appropriate discipline techniques, stages of child development, effects of substance use on children and families, and overall safety. We work in collaboration with CPS to provide the best education and support to our families in hopes of reunification.

​This program requires a referral directly from Hennepin County Child Protective Services.
