PARENT HELP Program Fact Sheet
What is Parent Help?
PARENT HELP offers a variety of FREE, voluntary and confidential telephone-based services to help dads and moms who are living apart resolve their conflicts over such issues as child custody, visitation, child support and co-parenting.
Who answers the phone?
PARENT HELP services are provided by experienced family services professionals including social workers, mediators, parenting educators and legal advocates.
How are referrals made?
Parents may self refer and do not need a formal referral to participate. However most referrals come from our human services colleagues, Child Support case managers, support courts and other social service agencies who give parents the program brochure, refer parents to the program poster and/or verbally suggest that parents with issues call the PARENT HELP toll-free telephone number.
If referred, do parents have to make the call to PARENT HELP?
No. Parent participation is totally voluntary. Parent participation is not mandated or required by child support enforcement or support court.
