About the Parent Resource Centers:
The centers are comfortable community gathering spaces equipped with multiple computers as well as phones, sofas, small libraries, play areas for children and more. They offer expert-led workshops, child care, GED support, job training, support groups, MEAP assistance, book clubs, sessions on Title I programs, college information, coffee talks on parent engagement and other offerings. The Centers are part of DPS’ Parent and Community Engagement plan to increase parent involvement through school-based Parent Resource Centers, ongoing training camps that focus on parenting, workshops and more. This Title I initiative was developed with input from parents and guardians, community leaders and the Detroit Parent Network. It is funded, in part, with a three-year $1.2 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
