Parent Cafés

What are Parent Cafés?

Cafés are structured discussions that use the principles of adult learning and family support. Parent Cafés are small group gatherings to deliver training content and provide support. Provider Cafés will bring community service providers together for information sharing, training on service offerings, and coaching on secondary trauma and self-care.

Parent Cafés focus on building and promoting five protective factors to reduce risk and create optimal outcomes for children, youth and families.

  • Parental Resilience
  • Social Connections
  • Knowledge of Parental and Child Development
  • Concrete Support in Times of Need
  • Social and Emotional Competence of Children
