The Parent Child Center of Tulsa believes that all children deserve to be loved, nurtured and protected. We strive to offer a PATHWAY OF HOPE to support families where they are in the community. SafeCare® is a voluntary and free of charge family support program.
SafeCare® is a program for parents of children 0-5 years. The Parent Child Center of Tulsa’s Parent Educators visit families in their own homes for weekly sessions spanning five topics:
- Parent Infant and Child Interaction
- Managing Child Behavior
- Home Safety
- Child Health
- Healthy Relationships
We help parents to:
- IDENTIFY resources within their community and help families get essential needs met;
- ASSESS their children’s health care and medical needs, use a health manual, prevent illness, identify symptoms of childhood illness or injuries and provide or seek appropriate treatment when needed. A health manual, first aid kit and thermometer are provided;
- IDENTIFY and eliminate home safety and health hazards by removing them or making them inaccessible. Safety latches and other safety devices are provided, as needed;
- SET GOALS for their family’s future; and
- IDENTIFY and utilize fun activities that will increase positive interactions with their children.
Pregnant women, and families with children up to age five, may enroll. Services are provided FREE OF CHARGE and are available to both English and Spanish speaking families.
