About this grant

The Parent-Teacher Home Visit Project began as a project of Sacramento Area Congregations Together, an affiliate of PICO National Network. The project proved to be successful, and in 2002, the Parent-Teacher Home Visit Project was separately incorporated in order to facilitate the expansion of the project. Working with local community groups, project staff provided training to parents and teachers for effective home visits. The success led the California State Legislature to appropriate funds for teacher pay and training. Mott funding will support the training of teachers and an expansion of the program to other states.
