Virtual Programs

connecting parents and families in the eastern Monadnock region

During this COVID-19 outbreak and resulting stay-at-home orders, we have moved our programs online and have made all of them free to continue to offer much-needed parenting and family support.

We are all navigating these crazy waters together, so let’s connect and support each other the only way we can right now: virtually at home!
