YWCA Metropolitan Chicago’s Project HELP

Project HELP’s history begins with the Exchange Club of Naperville in 1992. Understanding the inherent challenges of parenting children, members of the Exchange Club established Project HELP as a non-profit organization in an effort to help parents achieve better parenting skills. The organization’s mission is empowering parents, nurturing families and strengthening communities. Project HELP accomplishes this by providing:

  • Home-based parent mentoring services
  • Parenting education workshops

The Parent Mentor Program is a nationally recognized parenting and family-strengthening program for ALL families. It is an evidenced-based home-visitation program found to help parents improve their understanding of child development, parent more effectively, improve their ability to identify and manage situational stress, strengthen their social support networks, and increase their ability to identify, find, and access services to meet their family’s basic needs.
