Cuyahoga County Parenting Programs Survey Underway
Invest in Children needs your help in conducting a survey of the parenting programs currently available in Cuyahoga County. We believe that all families can succeed in their parenting roles at home and in the community, during pregnancy and beyond. The purpose of the survey is to develop a database of these important programs and identify gaps in services. We estimate it will take you about 15-20 minutes. If you complete the survey, a de-identified summary of all the results received will be shared with you early in 2014. Thank you for your willingness to help us support parents in life’s most important job! http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1363197/Parent-Skills-Program-Survey
