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) in July 2015, which will extend program services until September 2019. The program, which serves young parents aged 14-25, uses research-backed curricula to teach healthy parenting techniques to help young mothers and fathers learn the best way to care for their children.
