Wesley Parent Support Group
We recognize what a challenging time parents face when their children are very young. In order to help parents in our community face those challenges effectively, we offer focused, supportive discussions that center on issues and solutions. These evenings also serve as a chance to meet and get to know other families who are facing the same challenges.
