Families in 28 states from Maine to California will have the opportunity to seek support from parent information and resource centers that have opened after receiving grants as part of the Goals 2000: Educate America Act.These parent centersrespond to local conditions with their own priorities and activities, but they share a common objective to help families get involved in their children's learning.
Each center serves the entire state in which it is located or a region of that state, and includes both urban and rural areas. While information and assistance may be provided to any parent, the centers are required to target areas with high concentrations of low-income, minority, and limited-English- proficient parents.
A list of the centers is provided below with a contact name to find out the specific services offered, including parent-to- parent training activities, hotlines, mobile training teams, resource and lending libraries, support groups, and referral networks:
