Moms Graduate from Parenting Class


On July 15, the Wylie Center will congratulate another Incredible Years class on their effort over the past 12 weeks. The class was being held at Amelia's Light, a local women's shelter at March Airforce Base.
The single mothers learned several strategies on how to play with their child(ren), utilize descriptive praise, and how to implement a routine.
This parenting class was funded by the Seraphim Fund, The Community Foundation Serving San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
4th of July Craft


Do you need a fun craft that will entertain your kids and help you set the table? "Well, this is one can-do robot. His recycled-can head holds a hair-raising array of utensils, and a clear container belly keeps cookies safe from eager little hands until it's time for dessert."


Wylie Center Will Now be Offering Triple P Parenting Classes!


Triple P Parenting Classes can help you encourage behavior you like, deal with problem behavior, become confident as a parent, be realistic about parenting, and take care of yourself. This 8 week class is geared towards parents of children birth - 12. Each class session is last no longer than 2 hours and child care will be provided. 
Classes are FREE to Riverside County Residents and has NO INCOME REQUIREMENT! Group Classes can also be scheduled for Church groups, PTA's, Mom's Clubs, etc. If you would like to sign up or want more information, please contact Cassandra White at 951-683-5193 xt. 209
This program is funded in part by The County of Riverside Department of Mental Health.

Wylie Center Enters Awards Contest to Help Mom's with Post-partum Mood Disorders


 GarrisonIf you are willing to "like it" on your Facebook page (and consider encouraging friends to do the same) this is a really easy way for you to help us raise awareness and fundraise for women with postpartum depression.  


We are working with StayClassy, an on-demand social fundraising solution for non-profit organizations which helps 501c3 market themselves across the web, particularly to a younger demographic, with plug-ins to popular social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and more. 


So the feel of this is more like a "contest" than a fundraiser.  "Prize" is $150,00 to be divided between 12 non-profits.  The Inland Empire Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative applied as an "advocacy" organization to be a part of this contest and were approved.   


We have until July 8th to get a minimum of 100 people to "like us" on Facebook.  We already have 160 so we have met the minimum, but we want to exceed this by far so that we can be in the Top 25 to get into the next round of competition.
