Families need and deserve support through the ups and downs of raising children.
Family Centers are where parents and children go to meet other families, tap into community resources, learn new parenting skills, and participate in activities and support programs. Programs are open to all families with young children within the community and may include parent-child activities, playgroups, social events, and drop-in hours.
Centers partner with parents and kids to help them navigate and strengthen family relationships so that the whole family thrives.
The Children’s Trust supports seven Family Centers statewide that offer programs to families in nearly 40 communities.
