”Things happen, and circumstances occur. Parents want to do better and be better for their children. I’m here to help families start thriving. Let’s prevent crises together.”

Executive Director, Kutest Kids Parents as Teachers

What is important to us?

Meet our executive director, Vonee.

She is a passionate about helping families and she’s ready to welcome you personally.

Vonee is a mom, too.

She’s an experienced advocate in the child welfare space. And on top of that, she’s a seasoned program director who still does in-person visits to parents at home.

Real-life parenting is not like in the fairy tales.

Vonee gets it.She knows that all parents want to be great parents. And that sometimes stuff happens. Life challenges can get in the way. So it’s not about you doing a good or a bad job. It’s about getting you the support and empowerment you need so you can give your child the best shot possible.

Our Mission


Our program is an affiliate of the international PAT organization. Our mission is to inspire and support caregivers and children as they build healthy relationships within their family unit. We meet families in their safe spaces to share our skillset and work as a team with caregivers to empower them to be their children’s best first teachers.


We envision a community where all families are respected, treated with integrity, and fully supported. We want caregivers to wholeheartedly believe and know that their children have endless positive possibilities and that they have the ability to help their children reach their full potential.


We value diversity, equity, and inclusion within our staff and endeavor to have the community we serve feel that with every interaction with us. Our core values are the “hearts” acronym:
- Humility
- Empathy
- Accountability
- Respect
- Truth
- Support
