Parents Helping Parents




Parents Helping Parents is a nonprofit offering two services to parents in need: Parent Support Groups and a Parental Stress Hot-Line. Parent Support Groups are for parents who want to improve their relationship with their children. Parents come to our Support Groups seeking encouragement and feedback on parenting-related issues. Shared leadership, trust, respect, responsibility, and positive parenting are key components of our Support Groups. Groups provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment for creating positive and caring peer relationships. Our approach is preventative; once the emotional support of the parent has been strengthened, a parent is better able to actively guide and nurture their family.


Many parents need on-site child care in order to benefit from our Parent Support Groups. PHP is currently seeking a volunteer to provide child care at our Newton Group.

Volunteers must have experience working or volunteering with children and must be at least 18 years of age.

Volunteers must be willing to commit to their role on Wednesday nights between the hours of 6:30pm and 8pm.

Mission Statement

Parents Helping Parents empowers parents to nurture their children and build stronger families.


Parents Helping Parents (PHP)'s prevention philosophy is grounded in a self-help model based on the belief that parents are capable of developing their own solutions when given the space, encouragement, and community resources that they need. Thus, it is the parents themselves who decide the direction a conversation will take during a Parent Support Group meeting or Parental Stress Line.

Through a combination of trust, mutual support, honesty, and collective wisdom, involvement with PHP can become the foundation for a parent's own personal growth and change.

Parents Helping Parents runs 2 services:

1. Parental Stress Line: a 24/7, free and anonymous helpline that provides telephone counseling and information and referral to parents (call: 1-800-632-8188). Once training is complete, volunteers generally take calls at home.

2. Parent Support Groups: network of free and anonymous support groups that meet in many locations throughout Massachusetts. (see a list of current groups on our website at www.parentshelpingparents.org)


We'll work with your schedule.
