The Franklin County Children's Task Force runs a program called Parent to Parent
The Franklin County Children's Task Force runs a program called Parent to Parent, which matches first-time parents with trained volunteers who visit them regularly at their home during their baby's first year. The program began in January 1993, and more than half of the 37 new parents who have been matched with mentors since then are considered at-risk because they are poor, single, young, out of work and/or have a history of abuse. The program is one of the many that will be featured at Healthy Maine Families, a conference introducing a new model of parent support and education, to be held this weekend in Augusta.
