How We Help Parents Succeed

Helping educate mothers like Santos

When Santos was invited to attend the "Elegidos de Jesus," a school for parents, she didn’t quite know what to expect.

With 60 other parents in the class, she learned how to raise her children in a loving environment, how to communicate with them more effectively, and how her marriage and stress impact the development of her children.

"I feel more confident and secure now in what I’m doing with my children since the workshop," Santos expresses. Today, she is actively involved in her children’s lives, all because of the Compassion Parenting Skills fund and her local church.
