Parent Support Group Facilitator - Prison Groups

ORGANIZATION: Parents Helping Parents


Parents Helping Parents (PHP) is a statewide network of support groups for people caring for children. PHP’s mission is to empower parents to nurture children and build stronger families.

Our trained volunteers facilitate weekly support groups in the prisons and jails in the Greater Boston Area. In these settings, our goal is to create a safe space where group members connect to their children no matter where they are on the parenting journey.

We use a trauma-informed, mutual aid group model where members of the group help one another through a combination of trust, validation, support, and collective wisdom. Each group adopts its own rules which always include confidentiality (to the extent permitted in a prison setting) and establishing a judgment-free forum.

Our group facilitators do not need to be experts in parenting and will not be working from a curriculum. Facilitators do need to be able to work across differences and demonstrate an aptitude for active listening and navigating challenging behaviors in group settings.
