Parenting Education

Parenting 101

If you are a parent-to-be, or a parent already, you can expect major challenges starting from before the child is born and throughout their life. The undeniable truth is that raising children and providing for a family is not an easy task. However, you are not alone. Catholic Charities has a program that can help ease the stress of parenthood.

As thousands of families in Eastern Connecticut struggle to make ends meet, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Norwich is an indispensable resource that provides services and programs to assist families in need. The Agency believes families are worthy of opportunities to achieve empowerment and self-sufficiency and for that reason we have designed a program to help parents and expectant mothers and fathers get the information and support they need. 

Throughout the year, the agency conducts 6 week sessions of our Parenting 101 classes.  Our Case Managers discuss pregnancy, parenting, child health and development topics, and a variety of other issues. The meetings are a way for parents to interact and learn while they build supportive relationships. The groups are led by bilingual, English and Spanish instructors.        

Catholic Charities takes pride in the mission of assisting families to improve their quality of life, a mission started in 1921. A commitment to “Provide Help and Create Hope” for families of all faiths, throughout Eastern Connecticut.
