What are Parent Cafés?  Parent Cafés are spaces where family members and caregivers have conversations about what keeps their family strong.

The themes for this series are:

·       Taking Care of Yourself

·       Building Strong Relationships

·       Staying Strong and Flexible

Where and When are the Parent Cafés held?  Parents or caregivers can attend either of these sites.  We encourage families to attend the entire series to get the most out of the café experience.  However, attendance at all three is not required.  Please note that late arrivals may not be able to be accommodated once the Café starts. The Café will start following the 11:30 AM catered lunch.

All sessions begin at 11:30 with a meal and end at 2:30.  Lunch is provided.
