ABOUT PARENTING JOURNEY:
Parenting Journey is a national nonprofit committed to breaking the systemic cycle of parenting in poverty. We recognize that systemic injustices related to poverty and race prevent many parents from realizing the futures they, and their families, deserve. Our work is inspired by the belief that strong families are the foundation of vibrant healthy communities and the catalyst to ignite social change. We provide programs that empower parents and caregivers and strengthen families and communities, advocate for equitable family policies, and disrupt the social narrative around parenting in poverty.
Parenting Journey envisions a world where all parents and caregivers have access to the resources they need to build resilient families and succeed, no matter their race or socioeconomic background.
