PCHP QuoteCarlos

In 2012, Carlos and Karla had three children under the age of three. They enrolled in PCHP with the oldest of the three, Carlos. Carlos was not talking a lot, often got frustrated, and was not always nice to his younger twin siblings. After graduating from the Program, however, he is, according to his parents, a completely different person.

Carlos enjoyed PCHP so much that he got excited whenever he knew that Melissa, his home visitor, was coming over. He would even set the table for the home visit!

According to his father, Carlos is now a great example for his younger siblings, and has really taken on the role of being a good big brother. His mother reports that he now speaks in full sentences, and his vocabulary has grown incredibly. PCHP Coordinator Melissa Greenwood attests to this saying, “He started with limited language, but it grew so much. He really blossomed at the end.



There’s nothing to lose with PCHP – it’s always going to be a gain.







In 2007, Casey heard about The Parent-Child Home Program in Florence, SC and enrolled her two-and a half year old son, Jadin. Casey and Thomas have two children, Jadin and his brother, who is a year younger. Casey and Thomas, both working full time, took turns staying home, and wanted to make sure their “boys were on the right track.”

Their Home Visitor arrived twice a week bringing books, blocks, puzzles, and other toys used to engage Jadin and his parents in reading, playing, and learning. After a short time, Casey and Thomas began to see how the Program could not only help their children achieve success, but could also help them achieve their dreams. They both enrolled in family literacy classes offered at the Florence School District One Parent Center. They were working full time, taking care of two small children, and actively pursuing their GED’s. They continued at this hectic pace, determined to reach their goals.

After two years of The Parent-Child Home Program, Jadin graduated and scored in the 99th percentile on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test. Casey received her GED in the spring of 2008 and Thomas continued to attend classes until earning his GED in the spring of 2009.
This story is a wonderful example of the powerful impact The Parent Child Home Program can have on an entire family. It literally changed their lives. Casey is currently attending the local technical college and Thomas plans to continue his education once Casey is finished. Jadin is enrolled in the School District’s four-year-old program and is doing exceedingly well, while his younger brother is learning and growing with the books and toys brought by the Program.
This family’s motivation and determination are relentless and, in 2008, they were honored with Florence School District One’s Family Literacy award.

Two determined parents, two enthusiastic children, a proven program, books and toys, and a supportive family literacy program; mix them all together and you have a recipe for success, all thanks to the Florence School District One and The Parent-Child Home Program!
