Welcome to the Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative blog! We publish useful information for families, caregivers, and professionals who support children and families.
The Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative (OPEC) supports a statewide network of parenting “Hubs” striving to connect families with free parenting resources and programs in communities and online to help parents be the parents they want to be. OPEC programs are for all families and strive to build community while honoring each family for their values, identities, home language, culture, and lived experiences. OPEC programs are free to families in Oregon and Siskiyou County, California, based in research, and culturally responsive.
OPEC is a partnership between four of Oregon’s largest foundations (The Oregon Community Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust and The Collins Foundation) and Oregon State University (OSU). In addition to funding, OPEC supports grantees through evaluation, technical assistance, and professional development led by faculty and staff at OSU.
