Families & Parents


Parenting is hard work! As Southern Oregon’s Parenting Hub, the The Family Connection and The Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative (OPEC) were founded to help. Please take advantage of our parenting classes, workshops, and events! Great parenting doesn’t happen in isolation… Let’s get connected!

Not sure where to start? You are in the right place! Please visit our Facebook page for events, too.
