April is National Minority Health Month, a time to address the health challenges in minority communities. This year's theme, 'Be the Source for Better Health,' highlights the importance of unity and cultural understanding for healthier lives.


Let's embrace diversity, strengthen community ties, and ensure equitable access to healthcare for all. Join us in celebrating and advocating for a fairer, healthier future.

The Black Mamas Matter Alliance created Black Maternal Health Week to spotlight Black maternal health issues, inspire action, and push for change. This year's theme, "Our bodies STILL belong to us: Reproductive Justice NOW!", stresses the need for reproductive rights.



Starting April 11th, which aligns with the International Day for Maternal Health and Rights, this week coincides with National Minority Health Month. Join us in supporting the Black Mamas Matter Alliance as we advocate for better maternal health outcomes


Neurodiversity Rocks!


As we step into April, let's take a moment to recognize its significance as World Autism Awareness Month and April 2nd as World Autism Awareness Day! Throughout these next weeks, let's champion the celebration of diversity and advocate for a world where individuals with autism can thrive to their utmost potential. Together, let's foster understanding and inclusivity!

Our Next Triple P Discussion Group


This discussion group delves into the skills that children need to be able to cooperate and get along with others. Parents learn how to teach skills such as sharing, communicating, and being gentle. They also develop strategies to navigate instances of conflict and aggression when they do occur.
