City wide parent groups for families of color.
“My introduction and involvement with FOCS has been through the parent/toddler group. I found this platform provided a great environment to discuss racial, cultural, and parenting topics and concerns in an open and respectful manner. It allowed for everyone to discuss topics, relate it to their own experiences, and to hear if another person’s experience was similar or different.”
The TRA parents curriculum focuses on common parenting issues such as feeding/nutrition, sleep, discipline, education, etc. while keeping social and racial justice values at the core of these topics. FOCS centers RICE (Race, Identity, Community, Equity) as a key part of discussions, learning and building together as families connect over parenting issues. The group will also hold generous special space for personal stories of adoption as parents and their journeys into parenthood per this shared experience. This group is for parents who were transracially adopted themselves. A group for adoptive parents will be formed in the spring.
