Parenting is complicated. Our hope is to have happy, healthy, successful children – but how do we get there? Whose help do we need? Where do we start? It takes a village to raise a child. Join us for a day when we learn how we are and how we can be that village. 

We Are the Village: A conference & expo that includes:

  • Sessions for parents and families that range from addressing challenging behavior to dealing with picky eaters, from supporting children in sports to The Sex Talk – and everything in between
  • Community Expo with information booths from local organizations and vendors
  • Free child care and activities for children ages birth through fifth grade
  • Opportunities to connect with folks facing similar challenges, joys, and experiences
  • Complimentary lunch will be provided at noon
