Guam Positive Parents Together (GPPT) Inc. received funds from UOG CEDDERS to form a Parent Support Group for Parents of D/HH Children, ages 0-3 yrs; form a Parent to Parent Mentor Support Group, (these Parent Mentors have a D/HH child over the age of 3); and finally identify Adult D/HH Role Models, in our Community, to share their stories and encourage Parents of a D/HH child that their child can also be successful member of our Community. As a result of this sub-contact, GPPT formed Project Fitme to administer these services.
Our primary purpose is give Parents, of a newly identified D/HH child, support from another parent who has been there and understands the emotional challenges; provide information and engage our new parents to join our Support Group; empower the parents to advocate for their D/HH child and educate them on how to Navigate the system. We also work closely with other Guam D/HH providers to assist our parents.
