Nationwide ARM Program- Parenting Support Program (PSP)

Organization Name

Nationwide ARM Program offers court ordered and prevention programs.

We have been partnered with courts since 1999, helping defendants in the criminal justice system accept responsibility and arm themselves with better alternatives through our programs.

We are dedicated to achieving our goals by employing proven strategies to change offenders’ values and beliefs, build their competency skills and hold them accountable. The result is reduced recidivism, improved public safety and enhanced quality of life for those in our communities. We strive to be an integral partner of a model justice system.

We envision: Offenders taking responsibility for their behavior, enhancing their skills and leading lawful lives. Our communities benefiting from a reduced recidivism rate and confidently investing in the criminal justice process.

Our organization is also expanding our juvenile and youth prevention eLearning programs and services in schools throughout Michigan.

Program Description

Our program is designed to enhance parental motivation and increase knowledge of parenting skills, family life, and the influence drug/health issues have on the family unit.

The ultimate goal of the Parenting Support Program is to improve parenting and family functioning for a more global improvement of the family environment. The Parenting Support Program is a parenting intervention designed to be compatibly used in conjunction with any standard court-mandated programs. The Parenting Support Program was designed with the recognition that parents come to us with a variety of issues, concerns, beliefs, and a full history of experiences.

Most of the participants will be entering the course as part of a court order due to an offense within the legal system. It is our hope that parents will experience a place of support, new ideas, and renewed motivation to be their best selves to reach their personal parenting goals.
