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!

Parents connect!

Families can be complicated and sometimes overwhelming, yet things become much easier when we have a system of support. Parent Connect provides a safe, confidential space for parents to make meaningful connections with one another, discuss topics related to their families, connet to resources, and engage with a "parent community." Led by peer leaders and TFC staff or volunteers, parents take the lead in shaping the groups they need while benefiting from the guided expertise of our trained TFC team members.

There's no cost to participate. Please join us for our next group!

*Please notify us a week in advance if you need interpretation services.

In-person groups suspended until further notice.
