Support and educational groups meet at the Family Resource Center at various times each week in order to meet the needs of families in our community. Here are the current groups available:
Parent Café- NEW Locations!
Parent Cafés are a great way for parents and caregivers to have their own conversations about keeping their families strong. Each session connects parents/caregivers to resources they can use in day-to-day family life. This is a parent-led discussion group designed to help parents/caregivers connect and learn strengthening factors to empower them to be the best parent/caregiver to their child.
Weekly cafés will be held every Wednesday from 8:30 ’til 9:30 AM at the Family Resource Center (122 N. Laurel Drive in Clarkesville). Parking is available at Clarkesville City Hall.
