Improve your family dynamic with parenting classes and family counseling. For youth in distress that affects their ability or willingness to attend school, we offer truancy prevention and dropout counseling sessions.

In the event that a court of law requires you to attend parenting classes, we offer a class once a week for six weeks. At the successful conclusion of the class, you receive a certificate of completion to turn in to meet Child Protective Services, court, or probation requirements. Contact us to register for classes.
