Beth joined the group because she felt alone as a single Mom. She has a toddler and a five-year old.  “It makes such a difference to have a place to talk to people. I know now I am not the only one who struggles.”

Parenting support is vital for all families. If you live in South King County, our weekly Auburn Circle of Parents group may be exactly what you are looking for.

The group is free – as is the supervised children’s group that operates at the same time.  That too makes a huge difference. “If I had to pay for childcare to attend,” says Beth, “I couldn’t go.”

Group is a safe, caring and confidential place to talk with other parents about all aspects of family life. Beth has made connections and friends there that have changed her life – and the lives of her children.  “It’s made a big difference. I feel like we have an extended family now,” she says.

Everyone is welcome: parents, grandparents, foster parents, step-parents, all caregivers.  It’s a place to listen, and to be heard. You can find more information about our Circle of Parents Groups on our website: https://www.parenttrust.org/about/programs/circle-of-parents/
