In 2010 there were over 35,000 reports of abuse and neglect in Fort Bend County and surrounding areas and the number continue to rise. Of those reports almost 8,000 children were removed from their home causing their family structure to be destroyed.
Research has shown that parents and other caretakers who have resources and support are more likely to prove a safe home for their children (Mallon and Hess 2005). If there is a lack of support services it can cause parents to make poor decisions that may lead to the neglect or abuse of their children.
H.O.P.E. for Sunny Skies was founded on July 5, 2011. The organization was created to help reduce the number of children that come into CPS custody and to also act as a preventative method for parents who have never been involved with CPS. We plan to provide services for families in Fort Bend County (currently localized in the Richmond/Rosenberg area). Services will include 8-10 week intensive parenting classes, Interactive Baby Monitoring, and parent/child visitation supervision and coaching.
