Parents Place is the Bay Area’s leading family resource center. We provide parent coaching and consultations, child and family therapy, parent/child activity groups, and parent education workshops for those with children from birth throughout the teen years. Parents Place Babies & Beyond groups help pregnant and new parents with education and support during the first year of their baby’s life (and beyond!).
With over 30 years of experience, the Parents Place team takes an integrated approach to supporting families. Parents Place parent educators work with parents to identify their individual needs and provide personalized guidance, information, resources, and support. Licensed psychologists, educational specialists, speech and language specialists, and an occupational therapist provide clinical support to children through our Center for Special Needs.
Parents Place was created in June 1982 as a nonsectarian division of Jewish Family and Children’s Services, and was one of the first family resource centers in the nation. Originally housed in a Victorian building on California Street in San Francisco, Parents Place now has centers across Palo Alto, San Mateo, Marin County, and San Francisco. We believe that parenting is the most important job you can do, and we’re here to help your family flourish.
