Lack of time, lack of skills, and every day stressors play a role in creating
barriers to good family communication and involvement in schools. We tackle
these barriers because they exist, because we are optimistic that these
challenges can be overcome, and because we believe families can develop good
communication and be successful.

Parent Education Success
Parents and families struggle with daily issues including good
communication, family conflict and stress, anger management, isolation, and
risky behavior in children.
We recognize the inherent difficulty in parenting and the need to reinforce
support systems. Parenting services provide an understanding of child development, and concrete ways to deal with the challenges of raising children.
Parent and family education groups are offered in Spanish and English in elementary schools and community sites in Multnomah and Clackamas counties.
MFS engages the energy, resources, and time
of many community partners and volunteers
