Parenting Support Information Available in New CWLA Guides

11/29/2006:   CWLA recently posted a series of "design guides" to its website that contain readily accessible information about parent supports. Developed under CWLA's Creating Parenting-Rich Communities Initiative, the design guides connect users with current online research information for educating decision makers about topics related to parent support, and for helping program developers draft informed grant proposals or policy statements.

The design guide parent support information is organized under eight key areas:
  • child care and afterschool activities
  • education
  • employment
  • family structure and support
  • financial security
  • health
  • housing
  • safe neighborhoods and environments
Subtopics under each area help visitors find information quickly and contain information and links to collections of evaluated programs and policies, research resources, and specific programs, practices, and policies.

Users are encouraged to send additional online resources for the design guides to Jo Johnson at jojohnson@cwla.org. These guides will be updated in 2007.
