Our Parent Support Group meets weekly to help you make positive changes in your parenting. The support group is a place to come together with other parents to share feelings about and get advice on being a good parent. You’ll exchange creative parenting practices based on your own personal experiences and develop a lasting network of friends who can serve as an ongoing resource.
Each meeting provides a combination of support and education for parents. You can expect structured workshops led by a professional facilitator paired with open, informal conversations between parents.
