All people  with young children sometimes need a tribe to enjoy, help cope and become better parents with.


Together for Children believes . . .
Parents are their child’s first most important teacher.
Birth to three is a critical stage of development.
Prevention provides the best start in life.
All families have strengths.
Families are strengthened by a strong foundation of education, information, support and resources.

We have served these ideals in Deschutes County since our inception in 1988.  We believe there is a need for a community where all parenting methods are explored and supported.

Happy Family


Our Mission Statement:   Together for Children is here  to enhance the lives of children by strengthening families though parent education, parent/child interaction and community support.
