Parent Resource Centers: Detroit Parent Network, in partnership with Detroit Public Schools, manages eight Parent Resource Centers (PRC) throughout the city for DPS parents.  Additionally, a Citywide PRC operates inside of Detroit Parent Network's building, available to serve the needs of all Southeast Michigan parents. The PRCs are designed to involve, connect and empower parents to help children reach academic success and serve as a hub for training and resources. The initiative is sponsored in part by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, granting $1.2 million over a three-year period.
