Families & Parents


Our stance as of 3/16/2020:

Since our offerings are in-person parenting programs, it is with sad hearts that we’ve had to cancel 9 programs that were set to start in April 2020. The Family Connection has no formal programming happening right now and it is likely that all events on our calendar (collaborations with different agencies and organizations that serve children and families) are also canceled.

The best way for you or clients to access parenting supports at this time is via our Facebook page. We’re still here for you!

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! The Family Connection Parenting Programs are self sign-up class series with no eligibility. It is a free service to all families in southern Oregon.

→Did you know? OHP customers can use TransLink and ReadyRide as non-emergency transportation to The Family Connection’s free parenting programs. Please confirm with each program regarding scheduling procedures.
