Kansas Parents as Teachers Association (KPATA) advocates for policies that support parents with young children. We help national, state and local decision-makers understand the important role parent education and family support play in a child’s development.
Advocacy is an essential part of building sustainable home visitation programs that build strong communities and support family and child development.
As a parent, teacher, or friend, you have probably tried to influence someone on behalf of another. Advocacy is that simple. It’s about building relationships with local, state, and national decision makers to educate them about early childhood and family support programs in your community.
