“Parenting is a life-long journey and it’s easy to feel lost especially at times of transition and challenge. GPS for Parents© provides the map to help parents find their way.”

We all want to be the best parents that we can be and we want the best for our children. However parenting is challenging -- new parents are overwhelmed, we face systemic societal barriers and life circumstances out of our control, and the daily grind of parenting can wear us down. It’s not easy. Parents deserve and need more support than they get.


GPS for Parents© is an integrated and intersectional community-based approach that supports the full spectrum of parenting. It is designed to support new parents, parents struggling with perinatal emotional complications like depression and anxiety, fathers, gender non-conforming and non-binary parents, marginalized parents, parents in recovery, infant/child loss, low income parents, incarcerated parents, and parents targeted by racism, Islamaphobia, heterosexism and other oppressions. Please ask if this model would be good for the parents whom you serve.
