Welcome to HOPES!
Healthy Outcomes through Prevention and Early Support
HOPES is a collaborative parent support program, services provided by Family Abuse Center of Waco Texas. It is for caregivers of children ages 0-5 in McLennan County. HOPES is designed to align parents and caregivers alike with the tools they need to strengthen their family’s well-being.
HOPES utilizes its staff with their knowledge and resources to ensure that parents/caregivers receive the support needed in raising young children. This includes assisting families to develop goals and objectives centering on family wellbeing, child development, healthy outcomes, and community resources connections. One program that families can be connected with is PAT (Parents as Teachers) Program which is a home visitation initiative available to families that qualify. HOPES staff will also have direct contact with other staff that will be able to continue case management relationships with families who enter our program and help to obtain other resources that could be beneficial to families within the community.
