PRIDE  (Parenting Resources Independence Direction & Education)

PRIDE is a twelve-month intensive parenting and skills training program for people ages 18 to 35 who are at risk of having their children placed outside the home.  Parenting Specialists at Independent Lifestyles work together with the family to establish goals and develop a holistic plan to maximize long-lasting results.  Through PRIDE, families receive the support, resources, and skill development to keep the family together, preventing costly and disruptive out-of-home placements.  PRIDE is a collaborative partnership between Independent Lifestyles and the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
