ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION: Since its founding in 1982, The Family Center (TFC), a nonprofit family services organization, has worked directly with nearly 10,000 parents, creating promising, healthy and safe futures for more than 20,000 children.  While many parenting programs focus on child development and disciplinary techniques, the Family Center's Parenting Journey helps parents become more aware about how they were parented, and how they are raising their own children. The Parenting Journey plays an integral role in identifying and breaking negative patterns of parenting practices and replaces them with healthy, strength-based approaches. Through an experiential process that involves non-judgmental support and coaching by group facilitators, they learn that they can solve problems, build and sustain trusting relationships, and seek help when necessary. In addition, through our Parenting Journey Training Institute, the Parenting Journey curriculum has been mastered by more than 1,000 human service professionals. These trained facilitators, located in more than 400 agencies throughout New England and New York, are able to share the Parenting Journey with thousands more vulnerable families.
