Keywords:community health nursing, community partnership, parenting education, collaboration, social capital, health promotion
Background: A community-academic partnership responded to a community-voiced need to address parenting challenges while living in poverty.
Purpose: To evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a community-based intervention that included positive parenting strategies to build and support healthy families, and behavioral health promotion.
Design: Multi-method pilot study
Findings: Focus group participants (n=11) valued the program highly. There were no changes in participants' (n=36) Perceived Stress Scale scores after program completion (p>0.05, d=0.063).
Conclusions: Participants were highly engaged throughout the program and requested a longer duration of the intervention to continue to build social connectivity.
