PARENT SOURCE

PARENT SOURCE

Parent Source formed out of parents’ desire to support other parents, build connections, and create a strong family voice within Elkhart County, Indiana. We aim to provide opportunities for group gatherings, informational events on emotional well-being, and regular meetings for you -as a family member- to be engaged in strengthening our community. 
Parent Source is part of the Elkhart County System of Care which is a coordinated network of community partners -formal and informal- who provide services and supports for youth who are at risk for mental health concerns and their families.
Family Voice is vital to enhancing the abilities of all those in our community who promote emotional wellness for our youth.
