PAT Home Visiting

Providing families the support needed to prepare children for healthy, responsible adult lives

Parents as TeachersThe Parents as Teachers (PAT) Home Visiting Program at Lakeshore CAP offers family-focused services to expectant mothers/parents and families with new babies in Manitowoc County.  Children who have nurturing, healthy and supportive experiences in their early years are much better prepared to succeed in school and life. Parent Educators work around your schedule and address issues such as:

  • Maternal and child health
  • Positive parenting practices
  • Safe home environments
  • Discipline
  • Community resources
  • Access to services

Weekly home visits provide individuals and families with educational information and parent-child activities to support parents as their child’s first and most important teacher! As part of the program, monthly group activities give families a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents with children of similar ages.

Following a community partner referral or a self-referral, a Parent Educator will contact you to determine eligibility. Please watch our Home Visiting video to learn more about it!
