What we do
The P.A.D.R.E. (Parenting Awareness & Drug Risk Education) program is designed to help expecting, new and current parents overcome the challenges with parenting.
The P.A.D.R.E. program has evolved and is no longer just for parenting males!
LifeSteps Council understands that being a parent can be hard, which is why we want to teach you ways to manage this task more efficiently. Though men tend to have different needs than women when it comes to parenting children, classes are available for men, women, and couples. Our program is made up of two main components: case management and parent education classes/groups.
Through these main program components, we will help you manage your specific needs and give you the chance to learn from and with other parents what it means to be a nurturing parent. P.A.D.R.E. wants to help mothers and fathers grow their relationships with their children.
P.A.D.R.E is available in 30 counties of Region 7:
Bastrop, Bell, Blanco, Bosque, Brazos, Burleson, Burnet, Caldwell, Coryell, Falls, Fayette, Freestone, Grimes, Hamilton, Hays, Hill, Lampasas, Lee, Leon, Limestone, Llano, Madison, McLennan, Milam, Mills, Robertson, San Saba, Travis, Washington, and Williamson
Our friendly and experienced staff are here to help you every step of the way!
