Parents Forum Calls for New Partners

In honor of International Day of Families Parents Forum calls for inquiries from agencies interested in using the program’s unique parent peer support model.

— Sierrah Chavis, Parents Forum Board Chair

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, May 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In honor of International Day of Families, May 15th, Parents Forum is pleased to call for inquiries from agencies interested in using the program’s unique parent peer support model to engage and serve parents in their communities. New board chair Sierrah Chavis, chief of staff at ChildSavers in Virginia, said, “The current mental health emergency among young people — along with parents’ stress, anxiety and burnout — makes our work more important now than ever before.”

Ms. Chavis said she is thrilled to lead a global board with members from Algeria, China, South Africa and Tajikistan as well as the U.S.: Virginia, Arkansas and Massachusetts, and to build on the organization’s thirty years of solid community work, primarily in the Boston, Massachusetts area. Parents Forum has active partners in Arkansas and Algeria.

Leaders of community-based organizations, elected officials and individuals are urged to contact Parents Forum before June 1, Global Day of Parents, to request information.

Parents Forum licenses its curriculum materials to agencies and helps them implement the program with those they serve: parents and others in parenting roles. Parents Forum's mission is to foster caring, honest and respectful communications in families by offering a peer-led parenting program model to organizations invested in community well-being.
