• We help build stronger families.

    We have some exciting news to share with you! For over 30 years The Family Center has worked with parents, children, and families in the communities we serve. We are proud to announce that we are changing our name from The Family Center to Parenting Journey. Our name may change but our mission and vision will remain the same. As the Parenting Journey, we will continue to provide positive, strengths-based programs for parents and caregivers, helping them to develop skills that benefit the entire family, as well as train human service professionals interested in becoming trained Parenting Journey facilitators.
