The Parenting Cottage works to facilitate partnerships to answer unmet needs in the community and to prevent duplication of services.
The Parenting Cottage collaborates with the Lubbock Area United Way on the Success by 6 Initiative as well as with many of the other United Way agencies. Collaboration with the March of Dimes provides for the Stork’s Nest Prenatal Classes. Working with the South Plains Coalition for Prevention of Child Abuse opportunities for advocacy and educational efforts on child abuse exists. The agency also works with Lubbock ISD and Frenship ISD to provide teen parenting initiatives on school campuses. The agency currently serves on the advisory committee for Nurse Family Partnership and the March of Dimes.
In late 2015, the Parenting Cottage began a more integrated collaborative partnership with the Lubbock Children’s Health Clinic, another United Way Agency by establishing a permanent Parent Resource Center within the new clinic at 13th Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard in 2015. The Parent Resource Center will serve as a neighborhood hub for the delivery of services into the neighborhood, as well as providing support and resources for families living within the neighborhood.
