About Us

Detroit Parent Network is a premier organization that transforms parents to make the Detroit area a better place to raise and educate children. Detroit Parent Network’s mission is to develop powerful parents (and primary caregivers) who are equipped to get the best education possible for their children.

Organizational History

Detroit Parent Network was founded in 2002 by parents seeking to increase and strengthen parent involvement in their homes, schools and communities. In establishing the organization, they hoped it would empower parents by: continuously strengthening leadership and parenting skills; building a better understanding of educational issues, laws, and policies; supporting parents in their efforts to identify high-performing schools, services, and programs for their children; and connecting parents to each other in a supportive network.
