The initiative was launched in May 2010, with six new regional parenting Hubs serving 12 counties, and nine small grants providing evidence-based classes and home visiting for specific groups of parents. Six additional parenting Hub grants were awarded in May 2011. Programming includes class series, workshops, home visits and family events.
In 2015, an expansion of OPEC increased the number of parenting education Hubs to 15, serving 27 Oregon counties and Siskiyou County, CA. A list of the awards approved in May 2015 is available to download here.
