United Way of El Paso County

About the Program

The United Way of El Paso County will have 15 AmeriCorps members who will increase school readiness through the Parents as Teachers program in El Paso County, Texas. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for increasing parents’ knowledge of their child’s age-appropriate development; improving parenting capacity, parenting practices, and parent-child relationships; increasing early detection of developmental delays and health issues; and improving family health and functioning. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage 30 volunteers who will be engaged in community service by organizing community resource network events, training for parent Group Connections, and arranging play activities for children and families. The AmeriCorps investment will be matched with $120,869 in private funding.
