Parenting Programs

Bounce Back
This is a ten-week parenting program that equips parents with the skills to promote and develop children’s resiliency. This program works with parents to improve their own skills in recovering from life’s inevitable stresses and challenges, and then guides parents on how they can help children cope more effectively as well. Bounce Back introduces participants to thinking skills that strengthen their capacity for lifelong resilience. Parents will learn how to create resilience-rich environments for their children by modeling resilient thinking and actions.

Right from the Start
During this eight-week program for parents with children ages 0-2, parents will have the opportunity to develop healthy interaction skills with their child.  The aim of Right from the Start is to foster parent-infant attachment and help develop caring and secure relationships between the parent and child. We will identify effective approaches and tools to encourage positive interactions and practice these skills together.

This is also a great opportunity to meet other parents and caregivers, building a sense of community and support.  

You Make the Difference

Communicating with your baby is key to developing a healthy relationship and building a sense of belonging for your child.
