Parents Anonymous
Parents Anonymous

Parents Anonymous® Inc. was founded in 1969 by Jolly K., a courageous and tenacious mother who sought help to create a safe and caring home for her family and millions of others. Created in California, the Parents Anonymous® Group still stands as the only evidence-based Parent Partner Program according to the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare. The program meets weekly, is free of charge to parents and caregivers and is evidenced-based and utilizes mutual support, parental leadership and Shared Leadership® to empower, inspire and create long term positive changes in their families. Children and youth of Parents Anonymous® simultaneously attend weekly groups which utilize the same principles to improve self-esteem, problem solving skills, enhance well-being and create leadership opportunities for personal growth and development. They created the only National Certification of Parent Leaders and National Certification on Shared Leadership® for staff to enhance social capital and ensure high level knowledge, skills and abilities to improve the lives of families and communities.
