Our Mission

The Parenting Center was founded in 1980 as a joint program of The Junior League of New Orleans and Children's Hospital with one mission to nurture families.
 
The center is a multifaceted community resource that provides support and education to parents. The goals of the center are to promote confidence and competence in parents, to encourage optimal child development, and to enhance the well-being of the family as a whole.
 
To accomplish these goals, The Parenting Center offers a variety of programs that address the normal developmental problems and issues facing today's parents. Core services include programs for parents of infants and toddlers and programs for parents of school-age through adolescent children. In addition to classes and regular group activities, individual counseling is available.
