Our agency is run on the generous support of our local community members and state agencies. As a local not-for-profit organization, we receive no financial support from a large national organization.

By supporting our agency, you are helping us take care of local children and families in need.

The Parent Place is a small, local not-for-profit that spends its monies on clients.
