Each One Teach One Together, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that provides resources and support to all families.  Each One Teach One Together encompasses six guiding principles:

  1. To be effective, parents need to be strong and flexible.
  2. To be supported, parents need friends that understand trauma and know how to be supportive.
  3. Parenting is part natural and part learned and therefore ongoing parent skills training is essential to blend the two. 
  4. All parents need help sometimes. Being open to receiving help, especially when in crisis, is a strength and not a weakness.
  5. Children need help in communicating effectively and parents need to develop the skills to assist  them in doing this.
  6. Parents and children need and deserve love and respect.  This reciprocal relationship can happen by learning parental behavior to enable children to feel lovable, capable, worthwhile and responsible.
