“Being a Facilitator, even only for a short time, has really opened my heart up.  I have a much greater understanding of and appreciation for others' resilience, empathy, and deep insight.  I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share an evening with such an unbelievably open and soulful group of people.”

“Volunteering as a Facilitator has given me the opportunity to watch parents grow and make positive changes in their lives and in the lives of their families.  While providing a safe place for them to come and talk about their problems, I’ve witnessed how eager parents are to share their knowledge and help one other.  Parents quickly learn that they are not the “only ones” with issues. Tears are often replaced by smiles and laughter and an inner peace replaces anger.”


​“It's something I do that I just feel good about. There's no doubt in my mind that this Parent Support Group is a positive force in the members' lives, and we can see change happen.”

“Parents come to talk about some of the most personal and difficult problems a family can face.  They all help one another and in the process also help themselves.  My job as a Facilitator is to make the group a safe place to talk about anything and of course to listen.”

“Volunteering for Parents Helping Parents has allowed me to personally take part in ensuring that a valuable resource for Massachusetts parents will be there in the future.”
