What is Exchange Parent Aide?
Accredited by the National Exchange Club, the Parent Aide Program partners with local families to match them with a positive Parent Aide mentor who can help them understand their options, build self-confidence and coping skills to manage daily stresses, access community supports and local resources. Once enrolled in the program, the family will engage in weekly visits for a period of 6 – 12 months with the ultimate goal of keeping the family SAFE, STRONG AND TOGETHER!
