Mission

Through a network of communities, Parents Helping Parents, Inc. provides education, resources, shared experiences, and support to parents whose children, no matter the age, are struggling with substance use disorder.

Background

Parents Helping Parents, Inc., is an Oklahoma non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2003 and dedicated to helping those parents and caregivers with children (of any age) who struggle with substance use disorder. Our focus is on those parents. We provide information, education, resources, support, and our own shared experiences to help them make informed decisions for themselves and for their children. To date, we have served thousands of parents through peer coaching, chapter meetings, parent phone lines, advocacy, strong community partnerships and promoting awareness. Our goals for the future include expanding our outreach in the Oklahoma City Metro area and beyond.

Impact

Parent's Helping Parents, Inc. (PHP) provides meetings, education, support and resources to more than 1,000 parents annually who have children struggling with chemical addiction. In partnership with Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, we provide Parent Coaching to approximately 50 parents each year. We participate in numerous conferences, workshops and other opportunities to connect in the community and make others aware of our programs. We engaged ESCCO (Executive Service Corps of Central Oklahoma) to work with our board of directors to establish a business plan, marketing strategy and more. These projects were completed. In the past 12 months, PHP has established new startup chapter in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. We also opened a new virtual chapter which is available to parents across the state and the nation. We serve approximately 1,000 parents each year through our chapters and early numbers show that we will serve significant numbers of parents through our virtual chapter. 

We currently have chapters in Edmond, Oklahoma City, Norman and Wichita Kansas. In 2019, we will establish a chapter in the Tulsa area and we have been awarded a grant from the Anschutz Foundation to establish a Parents Helping Parents virtual chapter. A virtual chapter will provide us with an opportunity to provide speakers and resources for parents on a national level.

Needs

1. Parents Helping Parents, Inc. requires ongoing funding to maintain our current programs, fund chapter needs, provide program coordinators to increase our number of chapters in Oklahoma. The approximate cost to establish a new chapter and provide continued maintenance is $583 per month/$7000 annually.

2. Parents Helping Parents, Inc. is reaching out to parents and others through social media and electronic emails. This is a vital part of our outreach. We list meeting and speaker topic information, available resources in the mental health community and more. This important service for parents requires a social media specialist at $525 per month/$6300 annually.

3. Parents Helping Parents, Inc. partners with Partnership for Drug Free Kids, Inc. to provide ten, two hour free workshops for parents whose children who struggle with chemical addiction. Parents Helping Parents provides the workshops at a cost of $60 per hour or $1200 total. We plan for two each year for an annual cost of $2400.

CEO/Executive Director Statement

Parents Helping Parents, Inc. is one of only a handful of nonprofit organizations that offer support for parents with children (of any age) who struggle with chemical addiction. Through our chapters, we provide them with support, education, speakers and resources to help them make informed choices for themselves and for their children. Often our parents tell us that they had no idea there was something like this for parents.
