Programs & Events

Parents In Toto offers a variety of programs that are focused on serving two key areas of assistance: support and resources and skills and social engagement. Our center, caring staff and volunteers, and wonderful program participants, all create a welcoming environment that cultivates friendship and connection. Friendship and connection are invaluable aspects of the support provided by Toto in everything we do. We continue to champion these goals while engaging with individuals and families virtually during physical distancing and quarantine challenges. Our online groups are thriving and expanding! We invite you and your family to check them out.
