The Parenting Place is for grownups who care about kids

Family Resources is now The Parenting Place! You’ll find the same people and programs you’ve come to know, but under a new name!

Our new name says it best. The Parenting Place is for grownups who care about kids: parents and also child care providers, grandparents, educators, and other caregivers. These friends show their commitment by actively seeking the support and information they need to provide a caring, safe, healthy, and positive environment for children.

Our programs, referrals, and resources are available to any parent or caregiver free of charge. There are no income requirements—The Parenting Place is for all! Our programs in support of child care providers include training, referral, and certification. We also serve as the area's provider of Wisconsin's Youngstar child care provider rating service and the La Crosse County Birth to Three program.

Our non-profit organization is strengthened by our professional staff, our volunteers, and our benefactors. If you are a grownup who cares about kids, learn how you can support The Parenting Place!
