S.P.A.R.K. (Supporting Parents and Reaching Kids) 

As parents, the question, “Why do they do that?” has passed through our minds time and time again. From the terrible twos to the turbulent teens, parents are often faced with behavioral issues that make us question our parenting skills and sometimes our sanity.


“I’ve taken about five different parenting classes and this class seems to touch all of the real life issues.  It was a more personal approach to parenting.  I learned new things each class and was able to go home and use right away.  It has helped me grow in all of my relationships especially with my daughter.
Jessica, November 2017 
“This class has helped me so much.  This class teaches why our children can be “difficult” or “strong-willed.”
Monique, November 2017

We can help you become better parents without losing your mind!

Parents, grandparents, guardians or anyone caring for children, 0-17 are invited to join us for a free eight-week parenting workshop*. Based on the Nurturing Parenting Program, this evidence-based model teaches behavioral management tips, creates more confident family leaders and helps caregivers recognize the power they posses in their own family’s development. Our participants will be encouraged, supported and assisted through this journey of recognizing the power that comes from learning effective parenting skills and the impact they will have on children as they grow.

Through the S.P.A.R.K. program, families will be strengthened, and parents/guardians/caregivers will have the ability to be the kind of role model their children deserve.
