Why what we are do matters:

The Parenting Cottage’s programs support families to help ensure babies are born full term and healthy, children arrive at the door of kindergarten “school ready” and parents have the skills needed to meet their child’s developmental needs.

Families are served at no costs and benefit from research and evidence based education for parents, early learning for children as well as learning how to access and use community resources that will give their family a “hand up” in improving their family’s stability, resilience and ability to care for themselves.

90 cents of every dollar generated goes directly to programs for families. General and Administrative costs, items such as utility bills, phone bills, building maintenance & insurance accounted for 10 cents.

What Can You Do to Support Our Efforts?

As a Lubbock Area United Way agency, the Parenting Cottage receives about 20% of its annual budget through the donors and supporters of United Way. As with every United Way agency, the Parenting Cottage is expected and required to also seek out other funding sources.

Please consider making the commitment to help the Parenting Cottage cherish the children by sharing either your time or treasure or both.

Our children are Lubbock’s future workforce, future decision makers and leaders. They need to have access to early learning and a chance to grow and learn in healthy safe environments.
