The BVCHD Mom & Dad Project parenting education and resource center was established in 2001 to meet an unmet need for parenting education and linkage and referrals for parents and caregivers in the Big Bear area. BVCHD’s Mom & Dad Project’s primary goal is to reduce children’s exposure to toxic stress. Through the Nurturing Parent Programs The Mom & Dad Project classes reduce and or prevent child abuse and neglect which in turn leads to better health outcomes for children and healthier communities overall. Research has shown that for families to be safe, healthy and thriving, parents must have a healthy understanding of appropriate discipline, children must have a regular medical and dental home, and families need to be able to meet their most basic needs. BVCHD’s Mom & Dad Project is able to provide these needed services to families in Big Bear through parenting education, resources and referrals, linkage to our family health clinic and dental clinic, as well as intensive case management.
