Parents Progressing with Life

Posted on October 2, 2017

Parents Progressing with Life (PPWL) is a free parenting program provided by PLC Philadelphia to empower parents. We take a creative look at positive parenting techniques and teach parents ways to apply these lessons to their daily lives.

We welcome parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teen parents, foster parents, & any other family members caring for children! This program is targeted toward individuals or their families who have been impacted by mass incarceration.

PLC schedules and provides day and evening classes, refreshment meals, transportation (tokens based on need) childcare, graduation gift cards, resource information and other case management referrals when requested. Participants are requested to complete 12 parenting skills training sessions. Graduating parents receive a certificate of completion.
