Parent Mentoring Program
About the Program
The Parent Mentoring Program of Saskatchewan (PMPS) is a confidential home-visiting based, outreach program for parents who are pregnant or parenting newborn to 5 year old children. There are 16 PMP sites across the province. In Sun Country Health Region the program connects participants throughout the region with the Parent Mentoring Coordinator who provides regular guidance and support in the participant’s home at no cost to the participant.
Why Are We Here?
The Parent Mentoring Program strengthens families by providing support, encouragement, and information with the goals of improving pregnancy outcomes, enhancing healthy childhood development and improving parental skills and life choices. We support parents be the best parent they can be.
How Can We Help?
The Parent Mentoring Program addresses overall family health including physical, social, intellectual, and emotional well-being. The coordinator can assist with parenting skills, healthy lifestyle practices, safe environments and child development issues by problem solving, sharing knowledge, resources and helping access other services. Specific support is determined by parent’s goals.
Parent Mentoring Program Volunteers
The Parent Mentoring Program also recruits volunteer parent mentors to serve as role models, friends, supporters, and companions to participants in the program. Volunteers should have experience with children and have an understanding of young adults, typically obtained through life experiences, employment, or other volunteer activities. Volunteers are screened, orientated, trained, supported, and recognized by the program.
