We created the Parenting Now! division in 2001 after government funding for prevention services decreased. Through Parenting Now!'s sales of curricula, training and products, we are helping to pay some of the costs of our parenting groups.

  While sales have been affected by the economy, Parenting Now!'s entrepreneurial work is an important piece of our budget.

   Soon, Parenting Now!

will launch a new website, thanks to a partial donation of staff time and skills by

Concentric Sky.

Birth To Three is  Model of Sustainability
   We've established a helpful inter-dependence between our local services and the statewide, national and international sales we make through our Parenting Now! division. View a schematic that shows how our system works.

   ...every day, I give thanks to the village that rallied behind [my son] Michael and me in our journey, and especially to Birth To Three for
listening when I was ready to start talking, showing me the reality of the abuse I was living, and supporting me when I chose the path leading to the happily ever after we enjoy today."
