Programs for Parents & Caregivers
Parenting is hard – we get it. You’re not alone. Our programs are designed to help you to meet life’s challenges and thrive!
Parenting Journey programs help mothers, fathers, and caregivers increase their confidence, capability, and resiliency – as individuals and as parents. While nurturing oneself and their children, each parent lays the groundwork for strong family relationships.
Virtual Groups: To ensure the safety of parents/caregivers and staff, PJ began offering groups virtually in April 2020.
In a Parenting Journey program, a small group of parents and caregivers meet for 2 hours a week for 12 or 14 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal, and complimentary childcare. During the final session, family and friends are invited to attend a Graduation Ceremony. At this celebration, we honor the participation, accomplishments, and strengths of each program participant.
Duration: 12 or 14 Weeks
Nutritious Meal (in-person groups only) – Start each session with a family-style meal while connecting with others in the group.
Childcare (in-person groups only) – You won’t have to worry about who’s going to look after your children during each session. We provide high-quality onsite childcare.
Group Participation – Each session will include group activities and discussion. Share your experiences, thoughts, and feelings in an environment of safety, trust, and respect.
Supportive Facilitation – In our non-judgmental program model, our facilitators are trained professionals who engage fully, as equals. They strive to create an atmosphere that promotes open and honest discussion.
Programs are offered through the Somerville, MA office several times throughout the course of the year. Visit each page to learn more about each particular program.
Groups offered in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
