PARENTING COMMUNITIES OF LEELANAU COUNTY

Utopia Foundation currently supports a local initiative, Parenting Communities of Leelanau County, with a matching grant, evaluation and communications. Parenting Communities provides support to families in Leelanau Country through home visits, playgroups, access to resources and referrals, parent education, developmental screening. Like all of the programs Utopia Foundation supports, Parenting Communities does not operate with a one-size-fits all curriculum but is driven by individual, responsive relationships. Parenting Communities’ integrated approach has had a tremendous impact on the Leelanau Community, reducing out of home placements and juvenile crime, increasing graduation rates, and providing endless support to parents through the community of those who share the belief that children matter. Learn More
