Working with Lori from UW-Extension has been very rewarding. With UW-Extension partnering with my employer, I was first able to attend Parent CafÌ© as a parent and then became a parent host. Attending the CafÌ© with other parents was very eye-opening to see that there was such a great need for the type of support and connections that the Parent CafÌ©s offer. Each CafÌ© is a little different, yet during every one one of them, the parents are so relieved to hear that they are not alone and that other families struggle in the same areas. With the help of Lori and UW-Extension, myself and another lady have been able to help host more of these Parent CafÌ©s in the community. UW-Extension offers so many positive and helpful tools for families.
