Welcome to the Parent Support Circles of Los Angeles County (PSCLAC), a First 5 LA funded project with the goal of strengthening families by reducing isolation through the development of 100 Support Groups across Los Angeles County.

Please help us to get these wonderful opportunities for support out to families from across the county.  Families may attend whichever Support Group that works for them, regardless of Best Start Community, address or district.  Please feel free to download and distribute the flyers below widely to the families you are in contact with.

Parent Support Circles of Los Angeles County

The Parent Support Circles of Los Angeles County (PSCLAC) is a project funded by First 5 Los Angeles. The Children’s Institute is the lead agency working with five Community Based Organizations (CBO’s) to establish 100 peer support groups across Los Angeles County. The overall goal of the First 5 LA Peer Support Groups for Parents project is to develop opportunities for undeserved, at-risk parents of children 0-5 that foster social connections, reduce isolation and encourage sharing of knowledge and skills. For The Child is the CBO responsible for starting 20 parent support groups for parents of children ages 0-5 in Supervisorial District 4, in partnership with community agencies and parent organizations

PFCCpartners is supporting the development of relationships between PSCLAC and LA County hospitals and healthcare organizations serving families who may benefit from the support groups.
