Welcome Parents and Parenting Educators
Family, in all its diverse forms, is the heart and backbone of a healthy society. Our mission is to improve the well-being of the family through strength-based programs that educate, influence public policy, and help families put evidence-based information to work in their lives.
CCE-Tompkins provides access to a variety of parenting resources on-line and through Extension Services in the Community. In addition to information and support for parents, we offer resources specifically developed for parenting educators, professional training opportunities for individuals who support families, and internships for students in the human services field of study.
Help create a community that is supportive of all families, every 3rd Thursday at 8:15 am at CCE-Tompkins in Ithaca! Monthly meetings focus on family-centered services, collaborations and policy issues.
Parents Apart® is a 6-hour workshop for parents who want to learn how to help their child(ren) adjust during their separation or divorce, or who are parenting separately. Next workshop is Saturday, June 8!
This FREE presentation, "Senior Transportation Options" on 5/30 will cover how to use TCAT, Gadabout, and other ways to get around Tompkins County without your car!
