Regional Support Circles

Support Circles are free, confidential, anonymous, (often) weekly meetings of parents who wish to learn new ways to nurture and protect their children. Support Circles offer a space safe environment for caregivers to talk about their children, parenting challenges, successes and failures, the stress or worries in their lives, receive support and parenting skills.
