Parent Education Project

The Mission of the UH Parent Education Project is to enhance the lives of at-risk children and families in the Greater Houston area. Our approaches to this have changed over the 30+ years that we have been in operation.

We are a totally grant-funded Project and a component of UH Learning & Assessment Services. Our offices are located in the Student Services Center 1 on campus, but much of our work is done out in the community.

The UH Parent Education Project offers the following services, free of charge, to families in the Greater Houston Area.

  • Families CAN – a parent case management program that provides case management or other services to 300+ families a year who are raising a child with a special health care need.
  • Family Based Alternatives Project – a specialized program that strives to work with birth parents or guardians to successfully coordinate the movement children in institutions to long-term placements with either their own or a support family.
