Virginia Statewide Parent Education Coalition (VSPEC)

Virginia Statewide Parent Education Coalition (VSPEC)
(A public/private coalition of professionals and parents)
In 2005, the Virginia Department of Health and Prevent Child Abuse Virginia organized VSPEC as part of the Virginia Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (VECCS) state plan through the Maternal Child Health Bureau. VSPEC consists of state and community stakeholders and service providers who work together to support a shared vision, mission, and core values.  The coalition works to identify gaps in parent education and strengthen families’ services.

VSPEC includes state and community partners along parents with lived experience working together to support a common vision, mission and core values. The coalition members work together to identify gaps in parent education and to strengthen existing services.

VISION –  All children are in a safe and healthy family.

MISSION: To advocate for and ensure that all caregivers and professionals have access to quality parent education, information services and support necessary to raise healthy families.
