About Us

Parents Plus was established in 1995 as a statewide Parent Information and Resource Center (PIRC) to bring parental education and assistance to families and promote stronger school-family partnerships as a means to increase the academic achievement of  Wisconsin's children.

In August of 2005, Parents Plus became a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that receives government and foundation grants.


The mission of Parents Plus is to educate, train, and support parents, educators, service providers, and community members throughout Wisconsin to strengthen families, promote student success, and achieve optimal childhood outcomes.


The vision of Parents Plus is strong and healthy children, families, schools and communities in Wisconsin.

Core Values

We believe that:

v      Families are the foundation of a strong and healthy community and have the right and ability to make informed decisions.

v Children have the greatest chance for positive outcomes when families remain  intact and both  parents are involved.

v      Parents are their child's first and most significant teacher and family involvement in education begins at birth and continues through adulthood.  

v      Programs and services will be of the highest standards of quality and will be provided in a culturally respectful and competent manner. 

v      Employees will maintain the highest standard of ethics and professionalism and will respect the inherent worth and dignity of others. 

v      Everyone deserves the same opportunities to succeed.
