Parenting Educators play a key role in supporting families in Oregon. Together as a community of parenting educators, we want to share opportunities for training, network for support and the sharing of resources, and promote quality in our practice.  


As an OPEC grantee, there are a number of resources available on this site to facilitate administration of your grant. Please check out the Grantee directory and password-protected Resources page for more information!
