COVID-19 Update: Parenting Journey is currently offering groups virtually–their virtual delivery does not include a meal nor child care.

Parenting Journey focuses on partnering with parents to build stronger families by developing their inner strengths, life skills, and networks of resources they need to succeed.

In a Parenting Journey program, a small group of parents and caregivers meet for 2 hours a week for 12 or 14 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal, and complimentary childcare. During the final session, family and friends are invited to attend a Graduation Ceremony. At this celebration, Parenting Journeys honor the participation, accomplishments, and strengths of each program participant.

Parenting Journey Programs:
Parenting Journey I
Parenting Journey for Fathers
-Parenting Journey in Recovery
Parenting in America
Parenting Journey II

Program Features:
Nutritious Meal – Start each session with a family-style meal while connecting with others in the group.
Childcare – Onsite childcare is provided during each session.
Group Participation – Each session will include group activities and discussion. Participants can share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings in an environment of safety, trust, and respect.
Supportive Facilitation – In its non-judgmental program model, facilitators are trained professionals who engage fully, as equals. They strive to create an atmosphere that promotes open and honest discussion.
