MHP is partnering with the Parent Encouragement Program (PEP), a leading non-profit educational organization based in Kensington, MD, to provide expanded programming serving parents and children who live in MHP communities.
The partnership is made possible through a $72,576 grant from the Children’s Opportunity Fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation. The grant will be used to strengthen the resiliency, mental wellness and school readiness of children who reside in MHP housing by providing parenting education and support to their parents and caregivers. PEP will offer two sets of six-week classes that together deliver its award-winning, evidence-based core curriculum to over 100 families at three MHP locations, to benefit nearly 300 children.
