Places for People recognizes the positive link between early interventions and best outcomes for children, especially those who are at-risk.

The program itself utilizes facilitated group discussion to provide a blend of skill-building, education, and support. The goal is to assist parents in becoming more confident and more effective, less stressed and less frustrated, while at the same time helping their children develop more positive and pro-social behaviors. In this way, many behavior problems are prevented before they fully develop.
