SCEP CENTRE: Coffee and Connection Parents’ Group

$1,000 Requested:

SCEP CENTRE provides therapeutic early intervention for children between the ages of 2-5 who have severe communication and behaviour challenges. SCEP also provides support to the parents and caregivers of our enrolled children. All of the services that SCEP CENTRE provides are offered in a trauma-responsive environment.

SCEP CENTRE would like to offer a more structured “Coffee and Connection Parents Group” for a number of our enrolled parents. Many of the families we serve are quite socially isolated and have suffered great inter-generational trauma. Bonding and connecting over activities such as baking, sewing, cooking, gardening and/or other small projects will teach important life skills as well as help the parents to gain confidence in their parenting as they interact with other parents of children with intensive needs. We have had successful parents groups in the past and would like to make these groups a regular program we offer. If funding was approved, we would strive to do a structured parent group activity once per month during the school year (September – June).
