On April 3, Iowa State University Extension of Scott County, Lutheran Social Services of Iowa and Genesis Bright Beginnings will sponsor the parenting support and education program PACT (Parenting All Children Together) for an eight week series. The program is financially supported by Scott County Kids Early Childhood Iowa. The program is designed to educate and offer support to parents and caregivers of children age birth through five years old and reside in Scott County.

For participating in the PACT program, a member will receive a free meal at every session, free childcare while adults are learning, a free gift at each session, bus tokens to get to the sessions if transportation is needed, $40 worth of items chosen by the participant if they attend at least five of the eight sessions, fun and friendship with other families, and great information to help parents and caregivers help their children be all they can be. For more information about PACT or to register, contact Marisa at the Iowa State University Extension office at (563) 359-7577 or mbloom@iastate.edu.
