Circle of Parents

Circle of Parents® is a creative and research-based program designed to EMPOWER and SUPPORT families in becoming more cooperative and peaceful as a family! Join us weekly in creating a safe and nurturing place for you and your children to expand your village, become centered, and share your wisdom.

Who?

All parents, grandparents, and caregivers of children and their children!

What?

A weekly parent-led and professionally facilitated support group where parents share in each other’s challenges and successes.  While parents are connecting in a safe and confidential environment, their children are also participating in their own support group.  Both parents and children will build their leadership skills, develop a network of support, and share in learning skills which help the family communicate and cooperate more successfully!

How?

It is simple!  Join us when you are free with any and all of you children.  Dinner will be served at 5:30PM and all children will have childcare.  Please call in advance if you have dietary restrictions.

There is no cost to attend and come ready to enjoy a good meal!
