Parenting is difficult under the best of circumstances. For parents with young children who are also struggling to manage the big demands of raising children, the Parent Support Outreach Program (PSOP) can connect you to assistance and support to handle many types of issues. Our outreach worker partners with parents who want help to improve their parenting to better meet the needs of their children. We focus on connecting with community resources that may be of assistance to provide specific kinds of help families want and need.
When Carver County Health and Human Services becomes aware of a family that may benefit from this resource we will offer to partner with a family who may decide to work with us voluntarily to focus on what needs are present and how the program may be helpful.
You may qualify:
- If you are a Carver County resident
- If you have at least one child under age 10
- If you can use help with chemical use and abuse issues, money problems, relationship conflicts and violence, homelessness, abuse or neglect, and behavior issues.
Please contact Carver County Health and Human Services at (952) 361-1600 and ask for an intake worker to assist you.
In addition, the Public Health Department offers Carver Healthy Families, a voluntary Public Health home visiting program for moms and dads having their first baby. Call Public Health at (952) 361-1329 for more information
