Community Café Parent Hosts Say:
“When you have kids, it seems hard to meet new people. Work, school stuff and activities just make everything so busy. Cafes are a place where you can really get to know and be present with other parents and community member in a welcoming environment.”
“I personally developed two significant relationships and I don’t seek relationships. A couple of individuals came to all the Cafes and I ended up inviting them over after the Cafes for a playdate. We build trust and got to know each other which developed into friendships.”
“I love hearing from all the parents regardless of language. The bigger goal is that ALL parents voices are heard. I had a perception that as q parent I didn’t really know where I fit in this system. I found a spot where my voice is valued and important and by doing this I’m giving other parents that opportunity and just seeing where that leads.”
