Making a Difference Since 2012

Imperial County’s Probation Department was awarded a Proud Parenting Program grant by the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC). The program, which serves young parents aged 14-24, uses research-backed curricula to teach healthy parenting techniques to help young mothers and fathers learn the best way to care for their children.

Rite Track Youth Services provides community-based and family-focused programming to at-promise youth.
