Parent Groups

Other Family Services …

Just because we are practicing physical distancing doesn’t mean we need to be socially isolated. Instead of in-person support groups and classes, we currently offer several Zoom-based parent groups, along with special guest speakers and events.

Whether in-person or online, we strive to create a safe, judgement-free space for all parents and caregivers. Everyone is welcome.

Special Events

Routines, Rituals, & Transitions with Scott Noyes

Monday, October 12

It Takes a Village and The Gateway Regional School District’s SPED Parent Advisory Council welcome back Scott Noyes! Many of our families may recall that Scott hosted an incredibly successful event for us “Helping Children Resolve Conflict & Manage Anger” last fall. Now he’s back with “Routines, Rituals, and Transitions”!

Scott writes: “Whether we are smoothing out the edges on ‘who had it first’ or working with the challenge of a full-blown temper tantrum, there are times when every parent could use a few fresh ideas. Bedtime hassles, homework blues, and rousting the tardy are issues this workshop series covers.”

Peer-to-peer support is a valuable tool for everyone’s well-being, and group facilitators are skilled in helping families find extra support when needed. Please know that Parent Groups are not a substitute for professional medical and mental health services.
If you feel like you are having a mental health emergency, please call or text the 24/7 helpline at 877-870-4673.

Thank you to our generous sponsors, donors, and volunteers who make the Parent Support Program run.

It Takes a Village’s programs are always 100% free to families, regardless of income or circumstance. We rely on sponsors, grantors, and generous individuals to keep it that way.

Do you want to keep these programs free?
