East Hartford ChildPlan | Improving the Quality of the lives of our Children and Families in East Hartford, (CT) Connecticut

Parent Action Team


Parent Action Team (PAT) formaly known as the Parent Involvement Committee was formed as part of ChildPlan in 2004, in response to ChildPlan's first People Empowering People graduates that wanted to continue meeting on a regular basis.

During that same time there was a great need to increase Parent and Family Involvement within ChildPlan, Inc. and also within the community of East Hartford. In December of 2004 the PEP graduates realizing that need incorporated parent involvement as a goal of their regular meetings and formed the Parent Involvement Committee, with the first formal PIC meeting in December, 2005.  In the past, the committee has been an integral part in the planning and implementation of various ChildPlan parent and family programs and services.

  • People Empowering People (PEP) in English and Spanish
  • Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI)
  • Family Resource Directory
  • East Hartford Welcome Packages
  • Community Outreach
  • Distribution of ChildPlan information to schools and town offices (Welcome Packages, Family Resource Directories, Family and Parent Events, General Event Promotions)

ChildPlan is now looking to reenergize our Parent Action Team and bring focus back to Parent  and Family Involvemnet in ChildPlan and in the East Hartford Community. Meetings will be help once a month with dinner and childcare provided.
