Parent Trust...has taught me who I am and how to be a better mother and grandmother.

Circle of Parents®

Celebrate successes and address the challenges of parenting.

Parent Trust for Washington Children is a member of a national network of agencies that provide the Circle of Parents® program.  This program of mutual help parent education and support groups is where mothers, fathers and other caregivers can share ideas, celebrate successes and address the challenges of parenting in a non-judgmental setting.  Groups are parent-led with the assistance of a trained facilitator, and offered free of charge around the state of Washington.  Many groups provide a Children's Group too.

In the Circle of Parents® Program we believe:
  • People can learn from the life experience of others
  • People can learn to accept support as well as give support
  • Lasting change is possible
