A. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
The Triple P Positive Parenting Program ® is a national evidence based program
that provides parents with practical strategies to build strong, healthy relationships
with their child (ren), confidently manage children’s behavior, and develop
nurturing relationships. Napa County Library is seeking Proposals to provide the
Triple P® (Positive Parenting Program) to families with children from 2-16 years
old at the Napa County Library. The Contractor will be bilingual in
English/Spanish and a Triple P® trained practitioner able to provide Group
Classes and brief targeted intervention in a one-on-one format.
The purpose of this RFP is to identify and contract with one Contractor (or
community-based organization) for the delivery of Parenting Classes to caregivers
who are referred or who self-select to attend Parenting Classes. The information
submitted by applicants in response to the RFP will determine whether Respondent
can provide these activities and demonstrate the expertise, experience, and ability
to provide Parenting Classes. The County anticipates funding not to exceed
$10,000 annually, allocated for one consultant (or community-based organization).
Funding for the Parenting Classes is through the California Library Literacy
Services (CLLS) grant, whose purpose is to help adults to develop their literacy
skills and meet individual goals. The CLLS Family Literacy Services aim is to
build on the strength of the family and connect parents to programs and services
that will strengthen the family unit.
Napa County Library’s decision to implement the Triple P® Model is based on its
successful use in other parts of the County. Triple P Classes have been available to
families since 2016. The Napa County Triple P (NCTP) Collaborative has 12
partnering agencies that provide Triple P services throughout the County.
