Parent-Child Home Program

The Parent-Child Home Program’s (PCHP) nationwide network of program sites provides low-income families with the necessary skills and tools to ensure their children achieve their greatest potential in school and in life. Since opening its doors, The King Urban Life Center, has utilized PCHP’s proven school readiness program to builds early parent-child verbal interaction and learning at home.  To this end, the King Urban Life Center successfully participated in a second recertification of the site in April of 2017, to ensure that the program maintains fidelity to the National Model as a high quality site. 

In the 2016-2017 year, the KULC, Parent-Child Home Program served sixty families across the city of Buffalo. Of the sixty families, thirty children graduated out of the program, moving on to their next educational step, including pre-kindergarten or Head Start; thirty families will be returning for a second year in the PCHP.

In 2017, we were honored that the National Parent-Child Home Program selected KULC parent, Mr. Valentino Shine, as a 'parent advocate' to meet with congressional representatives in Washington D.C.  Mr. Shine has two sons who graduated from the KULC Parent-Child Home Program, and understands the importance and the value of starting education early in the home.
