To strengthen parenting
& to prevent child abuse.
All children are nurtured.
"Thank you to all of the wonderful friends, donors, and supporters of the work The Parenting Network has done over the years. You have helped us support parents and their families so they can raise successful children which in turn makes our community stronger and healthier.
The original organization was established as a project of the Junior League of Milwaukee.
The project incorporated as Parents Anonymous. The organization expanded to meet a growing need and included the Parent Helpline (formerly called the Parent Stressline), peer support groups and home visiting services.
The Parents Anonymous name was changed to The Parenting Network to reflect the value of collaborative relationships as well as a committment to strength-based, positive connections to families and to parent leadership.
The Parenting Network is always growing and changing to meet the needs of the community and reflect the times. TPN's logo and website has evolved, taking on a contemporary look and feel, however, our core mission to strengthen parenting and to prevent child abuse remains at the heart of our mission.
