Up-coming Nurturing Parenting Workshops

Starting this month, Moss Street staff, Amber Herring and Jackie Brown, will facilitate a weekly parenting group using the Nurturing Parenting curriculum as the basis for discussion.  These workshops are for UO faculty, UO staff and UO student families, and funded by a grant through United Way. 

All meetings will be on Thursdays, 6:00p-7:30p.  Both child care and dinner will be provided free of charge to all who attend. 

Please call or email the front desk to sign-up to attend. 

The Nurturing Parenting programs are an initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills.

The programs feature activities to foster positive parenting skills and self-nurturing, home practice exercises, family nurturing time, and activities to promote positive brain development in children birth to 18 years.

We will have a total of 9 different workshops throughout the academic year, 3 each term.
