Parenting Journey
For the first time ever in this region, we are offering the nationally recognized Parenting Journey program. An evidence-based and trauma-informed program, Parenting Journey is designed for parents who want to break patterns from their childhood and make things better for their own children. Patrice Baker and Jo Ann Clement are leading the first 12-week session of PJ, which is now running in Somersworth. Click here for more info or to be notified the next time we offer the program (Fall 2019, in Portsmouth).

Federal Grant Renewed for Three Years
Our HRSA grant, which provides us with $3.65 million each year has just been renewed for another three years. There was a chance that it would have been renewed for only one year, which would have meant a site visit this summer. Now the site visit won't be for at least a year. Whew! Good job, Helen Long (our grantwriter).
