National Outcome Data is collected annually measuring the change in Parents Anonymous® Parents/Caregivers, Children and youth. We utilize a National Database, Fidelity Tools, and have Certified Staff to operate Parents Anonymous® Programs. Parents Anonymous® is both an intervention and prevention program where parents and their children and youth are empowered to create positive and long term change for their families (www.cebc4cw.org/program/parents-anonymous/). The Parents Anonymous® Program consists of weekly support group for Parents and Caregivers and a separate group for their Children and Youth (0-18), Parent Partners/Advocates/Mentors, Supportive and Helpline Services provided by the Trained Group Facilitators, Parent Group Leaders and Other Parents Leaders in between Group Meetings.
