Who We Are

The Family Connection supports and implements parenting education by partnering with other agencies and organizations that serve children and families. We are the recipient of the OPEC (Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative) grant to be the “Regional Parenting Education Hub” serving Jackson and Josephine County. We are one-stop shopping for all things parenting education and encourage professionals that work with families to use our free wrap around services for their families! We take great care to curate quarterly offerings that are diverse, relevant and taught in English and Spanish.

What We Do

We are one of the limited resources in Southern Oregon that coordinate parenting classes and workshops in a public format. We collaborate with community partners to teach free evidence-based Parenting Education curriculum in a friendly format for parents in our area.

Why We Matter

Parenting Education is the first form of preventative care to shield children from adverse childhood experiences. It is our hope that normalizing Parenting Eudcation for all socio-economic backgrounds as a community effort will help shape healthy childhood experiences. It is also our hope that parents that don’t “have a village” can feel supported and empowered in this community to raise well-adjusted, ready-to-learn children.
