PARENTING SKILLS & SUPPORT

Our “Amigos de la Familia” Program is a home-visiting assistance program for low-income, Spanish- or English-speaking families whose children may be at risk for child abuse or neglect.  Our case managers respond to requests from the County of Marin’s Department of Children and Family Services.  Through this program, our case managers help parents one-to-one with guidance and parenting skills to help parents learn ways to reduce their stress and improve their ability to care for their children.  Please note: this program is only accessible through referrals from the County of Marin.

Parenting Classes

Our 3-session series of free classes for parents/caregivers will be facilitated in Spanish and will take place in March. Our series of classes are for parents to learn and practice how to talk to their children about drugs and alcohol. The series is a prevention strategy to help parents of 5th graders or older to prepare for the conversation. This is not a series for parents who have youth who are already using substances. There is no cost for the workshops and attendance to all 3 sessions is required. Light dinner and babysitting are included with advance registration. Please contact Silvia Albuja at salbuja@nortmarincs.org or by calling (415) 897-4147 ext. 19 for additional details and/or to register. Space is limited.  Parenting Classes flyer
