The Exchange Parent Aide Program is a free and voluntary home-based parent education program. CAPA’s trained Family Aide will work with parents weekly for up to 13 months to achieve goals related to child safety, finances, problem-solving skills, parenting skills, and social support.

Why CAPA’s Exchange Parent Aide Program?

We understand that parenting can be a challenge. We are here to help.


What Happens During a Home Visit?

    • Discuss parenting issues that are important to YOU.
    • Learn ways to help your baby/child’s development.
    • Create a monthly budget to better manage your finances, improve credit, and save for the future, no matter what your current income is.
    • Develop a routine that can get the family fed, bathed, and put to bed in a timely manner.
    • Set goals for yourself and for your family. Your Parent Aide will walk you through each step to accomplish your goals.
    • Obtain support on how to handle tantrums.
