A resource for parents, caregivers and family members
Parenting is hard and definitely did not come with a manual. CADC knows what it is like to try to work through tough challenges and make big decisions on your own only to stay up all night wondering if you did it right. Therefore we proudly introduce our new program for parents and caregivers, The Buddy System.
Our new program is full of workshops, events, resources, and other supports to help as much as we can with navigating parenthood. We will be continuously adding material and resources so please check back regularly and sign up for updates to be delivered right to your inbox.
