PARENT NAVIGATOR PROGRAM
As a parent of a child once involved in the juvenile justice system, we know that the only way to effectively advocate for your child is to understand how the juvenile justice system works.
UCN Parent Navigators provide support to families who are facing challenges navigating the education, Harris County Resources for Children and Adults and juvenile justice systems.
UCN Parent Navigators help parents transition into a more supportive role when dealing with their child’s supervision efforts, educational challenges and overall level of involvement
