Together We Can

The Black Parent Initiative (BPI) was established in 2006 to help families achieve financial, educational and spiritual success. BPI is focused on supporting low/moderate income parents as a vehicle for enhancing the lives of Black youth through optimal health, cultural identity development, parent education and ensuring parents and caregivers have the resources to ensure children succeed. It provides a range of services, including parent coaching, parent training, and education. The organization has a history of working with parents of young children seeking reunification from foster care, preventing their child’s removal from the home, or navigating a moderate crisis in the home. BPI strategically partners with parents to improve parents’ job prospects, secure stable housing, access health care, enhance parenting success, and promote family stability.

Our Mission

The Black Parent Initiative educates and mobilizes the parents and caregivers of Black and multi-ethnic children to ensure they achieve success.
