Get Involved

Parent Guidance Center advocates for parents by participating in many meetings, public forums, committees, councils, and legislative hearings that involve child welfare and parental rights.

These meetings are usually open to the public.  The following are just a few opportunities for parent advocacy.  Some meetings allow time for public comment while others are open to the public for informational purposes only.
