Parenting Resources

It takes a village to raise a child and a community to support parents and caregivers in their most important, and often challenging role. See below for programs offering free information, resources, supports, and connection opportunities to support you on your journey.

The Group Connections Project

Parents & caregivers of young children of the South Coast Region are invited to participate in our Group Connections Gatherings!

These gatherings offer opportunities to learn, grow, have fun and connect as a family, and with other members of our community.

We offer gatherings monthly and rotate between in-person opportunities in Coos & Curry Counties as well as provide sessions on zoom.

Upcoming Group Connections Events

The Group Connections Project is a cooperative service between Coos Health & Wellness, Family Support & Connections, The STEP Program, Healthy Families Oregon: South Coast, Coastal Families Relief Nursery, Pathways to Positive Parenting, South Coast Head Start & the South Coast Regional Early Learning Hub.

Every third Thursday of the month, over zoom!
Dinner & childcare reimbursement provided

Pathways offers free parenting education classes, workshops and family events in Coos and Curry counties. Through partnering with schools, early education and other community programs to offer a variety of locations and curricula that meet the needs of families in our area, they utilize many different parenting courses focusing on infancy, the teenage years and everything in between.
