Parenting Peer Group Sessions

Our peer group sessions cover topics such as the stages of pregnancy, crib and car seat safety, parenting skills, and developmental milestones. Life skills classes focus on financial literacy, continuing education, pregnancy and STD prevention, and building healthy relationships.

Goal Setting

We guide you through assessing your current circumstances, exploring where you would like to be next year (and in the years ahead) and determine what steps will be necessary to arrive at that desired future. We tailor a plan specifically for you with attainable goals.

Parent-Child Activities 

Our parent-child activities are based on The Palmetto Basics, five principles that encompass much of what experts find is important for children from birth to age three. The Basics are five fun, simple, and powerful ways that every family can do to give every child a great start in life.
