Parent Cafes

Caring for children can be overwhelming. Parent Cafés offer an opportunity for any caregiver of children to learn from each other, share worries, and come up with new parenting ideas. It is an evening of connecting with other adults in our community – about what is important to all of us – OUR CHILDREN!

“I really enjoy being able to chat and get tips that I can use from other moms.”-Mother attending a Parent Café in Mt. Orab.

Thanks to funding from the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund, we are able to offer Parent Cafés in Hamilton, Clermont, Brown, Adams, and Highland counties. This support allows us to provide free child care and meals for families who attend. Please review the list below for times and locations. Pre-registration is encouraged.

Following each Parent Café, we collect a survey from parents that captures their perspective of the experience. The data below was reported by parents that attended the café series offered in Mt. Orab:

    • 100% reported the café was helpful.
    • 90% reported they met someone they plan to stay in touch with (social connections).
    • 90% reported they are more willing to ask for help if needed (concrete supports).
    • 90% reported they plan to better understand their child’s feeling (social and emotional competence of children).

We hope to see you!!
