Huntington Observation and Parent Education (HOPE) program is a supervised visitation and parent education program for parents with children in foster care. The primary goal of the program is to safely reunify families.
Typically, once a week parents start by receiving a half hour of pre-counseling, a one hour visit with their children, and a half hour of post-counseling. Increased visitation time occurs as parents progress. Visits can also occur in the home and community when deemed appropriate. Parents are provided individual and group education and instruction based on the National Extension Parent Education Model of Critical Parenting Practices.
HOPE referrals come through the Department of Social Services. Families will be considered for services as space becomes available.
