Parent Connection Events
One of the protective factors as outlined by the CDC to mitigate negative experiences in childhood is social support for parents. When parents connect to other parents they feel less stress and have more people in their life to turn to in hard times. All over the state we bring parents in our programs together to share parenting advice, encourage one and other, and enjoy an experience they may otherwise not be able to give their child/children. This is a prefect opportunity for volunteer groups to support our families.
