Nurturing Oakland Parents

Nurturing Oakland Parents brings parents and kids together to help bridge gaps and build empathy. Over fifteen weeks, at risk families with kids aged 5-12 will come to CARE House, share a meal, and break into groups. The parents will meet for guided discussions designed to reinforce values like empathy, positive self-worth, open communication and empowerment of children. At the same time, the kids will participate in volunteer-led play groups which mirror the themes of each weekly discussion. The structure of the program helps to strengthen familial bonds, and to establish new ones among program participants.
