Detroit currently has several local organizations, ranging from the social work offices to local faith-based partners, that run programming following various responsible fatherhood model that can be accessed by those parents seeking guidance. Beyond these specific opportunities programs, other organizations run programs that promote parental engagement in Early childhood development. For example, the National Center for Family Learning runs programming in partnership with the United Way for Southeast Michigan, which includes both parent classes, child classes, and work with families as a whole. Parents showed increased engagement in their children's school and personal lives and children's academic and attendance outcomes improved greatly (11). Current community organizations such as Sisterfriends Detroit, are run through the Detroit Health Department as serve as community networks for parents to connect to local resources, opportunities, and one another. Other local organizations advocate for policy that promotes parental involvement, in particular, the Great Start Collaborative tracks and maintains reliable data and maintains and stores information on early childhood events and resources (9).
