About

Parents Anonymous is an evidence-based family strengthening program. It helps families use mutual support (the giving and getting of help), teaches parent leadership (seeking solutions and becoming empowered), and shared leadership (working together) to achieve personal growth, improve family functioning, and achieve parental resilience. You may learn more about Parents Anonymous on our website at www.StrongAndSafe.org.
