The Front Porch Project

October 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
In light of the recent child deaths in Maine, now is a good time for the community to consider all that families need and what can be done to support them.  Parenting is a difficult job for everyone under the best of circumstances.  There are many different kinds of families, parents, and supports, and the more the community works together on behalf of kids and families, the less child abuse will occur.
The Somerset County Family Enrichment Council offers many programs for parents and families including parenting classes, groups, activities and more.  Additionally, The Front Porch Project, a statewide program sponsored by the Maine Children’s Trust, is now being offered.  This program allows community members to explore family culture, parenting styles, community supports, individual comfort levels regarding “helping”, how child abuse is defined, and ways anyone can be supportive. It takes the approach that everyone can help kids and families in our community. The class is always conducted in small groups where participants can safely discuss the topics.
Join us for a Free Community Training Wednesday October 27th from 1:00pm-4:00pm.
