About Us

The Family Center is a compass to help guide you to resources, professionals and information. Our community is rich in resources to assist parents but they can be difficult to find. The Family Center believes that by educating, connecting and supporting our families, we can share with caregivers the tools to succeed in this vital task of raising healthy children and building strong families.

Family Center Programs

Presentations and Talks: Leading practitioners present a variety of educational topics: childhood growth and development, behavioral issues, school transitions, youth trends, parenting strategies, family dynamics, current health concerns, caring for aging parents and more. Q&A sessions provide opportunities to dialogue with professionals and one another. See our Calendar for more.
