The Family Connection

1001 Beall Lane Central Point, OR 97501

The Family Connection provides a regional parenting hub where parents can come together, learn effective parenting skills, be introduced to community resources and find support from other parents. We also provide organizations and agencies the ability to contract an evidence based parenting series or workshop for their clients.

As an Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative, we partner with local organizations, businesses, schools, daycare centers, and churches, to serve parents and children. The courses in parenting that we offer are all willingly attended because those who come are provided with an engaging experience. Our parenting education series and one-day workshops celebrate positive learning and help parents become the kind of caregivers and role models their children want and need.
