Parent Support Groups

Screening required.

Coronado SAFE provides actionable and encouraging parents-only support groups designed to strengthen parenting skills and confidence to best support their child(ren) through specific struggles and challenges.  Through these support groups, parents learn how to help their young child or teen develop the skills necessary to successfully manage emotions, relationships, and his/her perspective when facing a difficult season in life.  They also provide a place to join into community with other parents who are going through similar highs and lows in their households.

Youth Support Groups

Screening required.

Coronado SAFE leads small targeted support groups for kids and teens who may need more help developing specific social, emotional, or behavioral skills.  These support groups are offered throughout the year in our office or on school campuses.
