Parenting Groups and Support

Groups meet for either 10 or 12 weekly sessions with families who have children the same ages. A professional Parenting Educator facilitates each group and follows a carefully designed curriculum. Each session includes group discussion and problem solving around topics of interest to you.

In addition, childcare is provided during your parenting group so you can relax and focus as you engage and socialize. Learn more about our Children's Program here

Our parenting groups warmly welcome all people, regardless of gender identity, family makeup, religion, race and ethnicity, and ability. No one is turned away.
