Parent Café

  • Cafés are physically and emotionally safe spaces where people talk and hear each other on topics that matter to them, such as the challenges and victories of raising a family, navigating landscapes of inequality, enhancing well-being, or being involved in the recovery process of someone they love.

    Through individual deep self-reflection and peer-to-peer learning, participants explore their strengths, learn about the Protective Factors, and create strategies from their own wisdom and experiences to strengthen their families.

    Participants leave Cafés feeling inspired, energized, and excited to put into practice what they’ve learned.
