A facilitated parenting program for parents of children from birth to age six. The program is designed to meet the needs of parents who are single, socially or geographically isolated, young, or who have low income or limited formal education. Sessions are based on what parents want to learn about, not step by step from a book. This program provides parents with a safe place to meet others with children of the same age and with whom they share interests and concerns.
