Support Groups and Educational Programs

Support groups offered by Dayton Children’s and other community organizations are specially designed to meet the needs of children and their families. Our support groups will put you in touch with trained professionals as well as other parents and kids who have experienced similar situations. Education programs offered will help children and families handle the challenges of parenting, weight loss and quitting tobacco use.
