Prevention & Support


Who is it for? 

Parents and caregivers of youth with emotional, behavioral and/or mental health concerns.

How does it help?

ParentVOICE offers support services for parents, caregivers and their youth.

Family Support Specialists

Family Support Specialists, also known as Family Partners, work closely with families who are navigating the education, child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice systems. They offer one-to-one support by preparing parents for and accompanying them to meetings with schools, service providers, and child & family teams. Family Partners also serve as an educational resource to parents and caregivers seeking ways to improve children’s ability to function successfully at home and in school.

Empowerment Support Groups

Empowerment Support Groups are for parents and caregivers of struggling youth, which foster connections between others facing similar issues. In these monthly confidential gatherings, parents and caregivers gain emotional support, resources and coping strategies related to raising children with mental health challenges, social networks, and a feeling of empowerment. Dinner and childcare is provided for in-person gatherings.


* Virtual sessions are held during the pandemic on the 2nd Monday of every month at 7 PM.*
