We help par­ents —Sin­gle, Sep­a­rated, Divorced— develop par­ent­ing plans, resolve fam­ily con­flicts, and deal with legal mat­ters con­cern­ing their chil­dren. Com­mon issues include Par­ent­ing Time (Access and Vis­i­ta­tion), Divorce, Child Sup­port, Pater­nity, Parental Relo­ca­tion, Domes­tic Abuse, and Parental and Grand­par­ents’ Rights. Clients can enter our pro­grams on their own, be referred by the court or from another agency.

Ser­vices include par­ent­ing sem­i­nars, a pro-bono fam­ily legal clinic, fam­ily medi­ation, domes­tic abuse inter­ven­tion, and refer­rals to other agen­cies pro­viding ser­vices that can help clients resolve their issues. Spe­cial pro­grams are avail­able for never-married par­ents, ado­les­cent par­ents, vet­er­ans, and fam­i­lies deal­ing with domes­tic abuse or child wel­fare issues. Our goals are to help par­ents meet the needs of their chil­dren, to reduce fam­ily con­flict, and the need for court and Depart­ment of Children’s Ser­vices intervention.

We rec­og­nize that each fam­ily sit­u­a­tion is unique, and so are the needs of each child. We do not advo­cate one type of par­ent­ing style over another; or one par­ent over the other. Par­ent­ing is not cus­tody, nor is par­ent­ing time a pos­ses­sion. We are a 501 (c )(3)non-profit offer­ing ser­vices regard­less of race, reli­gion, gen­der, or eth­nic back­ground. No one is turned away because of an inabil­ity to pay.
