THE PHILLIP HOUSE RESOURCE CENTER FOR PARENTS

Neighborhood Profile

Parents in the Ferentari Extension Area are typically unemployed and lack a basic education. Many are illiterate, some have completed schooling through the eighth grade, and a few have graduated from high school. Overall, there is a definite need for supplemental and continuing education, especially with regards to issues like personal hygiene, parenting methods, health and contraceptive education, and the job market.
