Anthony Parenting Program
The Anthony Parenting Program is housed in the Anthony living unit. All women residing in the unit participate in parenting and family skills programming. There are two groups, one for children up to age 11, and another for children age 12 and over. Every Saturday up to 12 children may come for an extended visit for the day. The visits are highly structured, emphasizing children's activities, the development of successful parenting approaches and security. Women in the unit who are not receiving visits help organize the activities for the other women's children.
Women must have no discipline issues to participate.
Up to 12 children served during day visits.
