Family Supports

family_supports Being a parent may be one of the hardest jobs you’ll ever have, but you don’t have to go it alone. There are Family Centers located throughout the County offering free activities for kids, classes, and events for parents and even support for dads. And if you can’t get to them, they’ll come to you! A Family Center outreach worker will find a convenient place—your home or a local library or park—for you to meet and talk.
