Parents Anonymous® Adult Program

The Parents Anonymous® Program that we offer is an evidence-based family strengthening program (http://parentsanonymous.org/research/) utilizing mutual support (the giving and getting of help), parent leadership (seeking solutions and becoming empowered), and shared leadership® (working together) to achieve personal growth, improve family functioning and achieve parental resilience.

Asking for Help is a Sign of Strength® is the foundation to the success of Parents Anonymous® programs. The Parents Anonymous® Program consists of a weekly support group for Parents and Caregivers and a separate group for their Children and Youth (0-18). Parents Anonymous® is both an intervention and prevention program where parents and their children are empowered to create positive and life term change for their families. Parents are encouraged to address any family concern in a safe and caring environment.

There is a Trained Facilitator and Parent Group Leader in every Parents Anonymous® Group fostering emotional support amongst all participants to improve protective factors, reduce risk, and ensure family stability.

Parent leadership opportunities through National Certification (http://parentsanonymous.org/national-certification/) and the Shared Leadership® in Action Program (http://parentsanonymous.org/programs/shared-leadership-in-action-program/) are fostered outside of the Parents Anonymous® Group to ensure meaningful shared leadership® in policy development, program design and achieving positive outcomes for families and every February we celebrate National Parent Leadership Month (http://parentsanonymous.org/programs/national-parent-leadership-month/).

Parents and caregivers of all backgrounds are welcome including mothers, fathers, grandparents, step parents, parents of special needs children, teen parents and foster parents.

Advocacy efforts are essential and for those families involved in the child welfare system the National Coalition on Parent Advocacy can help (https://strengthening-families.org/parentadvocacy/index.html).

Parents call the National Parent Helpline® 1-855-4A-PARENT (1-855-427-2736) to receive emotional support and referrals in between weekly Parents Anonymous® Groups (www.nationalparenthelpline.org).
