Parents as Teachers in Indianola

These are the goals of the Delta Health Alliance Indianola Promise Community PARENTS AS TEACHERS project. Trained staff are working in Indianola to identify expectant mothers and new parents to join the program. This initiative will serve families who are expecting all the way through when their children enter kindergarten. Through one-on-one visits in the home and group meetings with Delta Health Alliance IPC staff, these parents become the teachers in their own homes and neighborhoods. The skills they learn enable them to deliver healthier babies and grow healthier children. This program also makes available to families health and developmental screenings for their children and creates networks among parents so they can help each other. With this kind of personal involvement and on-the-ground intervention, Delta Health Alliance is working every day to secure a healthier Indianola.

Indianola Promise Community Brochure 2013

What is the Indianola Promise Community? The Indianola Promise Community (IPC) is a community-based initiative to provide children with the opportunity to succeed in school, graduate, and attend college. While it is sponsored by Delta Health Alliance, its many local partners include: Indianola School District, City of Indianola, Delta State University, B.B. King Museum, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and many others. Our office is located at 135 Front Street in Indianola, though we have staff and volunteers working throughout the city. And while we sponsor many programs, we have one priority – making sure children in Indianola have the opportunities they need to excel, so they “never miss a beat” from birth to college graduation.
