Parenthesis Spotlight

After months of careful consideration, the Board of Directors of Parenthesis Family Center has made the decision to become acquired by New Moms, a nearby agency providing similar services to families. The impact of Parenthesis’ grassroots efforts over the past 36 years has been profound, leaving a legacy of stronger and healthier families in Oak Park and River Forest. This legacy is one that we wanted to honor and maintain as we critically assessed what was needed to become a sustainable organization in our community.
