Parenting & Family Groups

Positive Parenting… Plus!

Being a parent isn’t always easy… how we parent our children impacts their health, ability in school, and future success in life. Most parents regardless of race, culture, or financial situations are affected by daily demands, time limitations, and stress in general. We can easily become overwhelmed.

Positive Parenting… Plus! uses proven curriculum and methods to offer information, emotional support, skill building, and personal insights,  helping moms, dads, or other family caregivers be the best parents possible!

In our community-based partner sites, parents are encouraged to bring their children (up to age 13) who can share in the “family meal” and participate in their own group focused on similar topics.  This is where the “plus” comes in!

Nurturing Families

Sometimes parents need extra help in understanding their children and practicing parenting skills. It’s easy to fall into familiar patterns when everyday stress overwhelms us. This program benefits all family members through education, skills, and insights.

Nurturing Families offers a two-generational, personalized program provided by our caring Family Coaches in homes, designated safe zones, or facilities (substance abuse, jails, etc).

Parent support groups

Our families can be complicated and sometimes overwhelming. But things become much easier when we have a system of support. These groups are created to allow parents (and kids) to make meaningful connections with one another, discuss topics related to families, connect to resources, and engage with the community.

Groups are free of charge and meet bi-weekly. Childcare and refreshment are provided. *Please notify us a week in advance if you need childcare.

Led by peer leaders and TFC staff and volunteers, parents can take pride in shaping the groups they need while benefiting from the guided expertise of our Change Agents!
