Parenting is one of life's most rewarding experiences but it can be extremely challenging as well. Fortunately, you don't have to tackle parenting all alone – there are many great resources available. Maybe a drop-in centre works best for you and your family, or perhaps you feel more comfortable at a regularly scheduled group or class.

Depending on where you live in Manitoba, you may be able to access a range of programs at the community level. To find out more about the community-based services and programs for families in your area, click on the links below.
