|Description (Service)||Building Safer Communities, One Block at a Time
The Waterloo Regional Block Parent® Program provides programs and services that build safe, connected, and engaged neighbourhoods that encourage children, and their communities, to embrace a more healthy and active lifestyle in the Region of Waterloo.
A Block Parent is an adult volunteer who has been Police and Block Parent screened, has been trained, and who has received a registered Block Parent Sign. The Block Parent sign is placed in a front facing window of the Block Parent home. The sign indicates that an adult is available to answer the door to a child, or any community member, who needs assistance. The Block Parent can offer assistance by calling a parent, family member or emergency services. The Block Parent sign shows the community that a caring adult is available, that children are encouraged to visit the Block Parent home if they need assistance, and acts as a deterrent to possible crime in the neighbourhood.
