Since our inception, PCC has prioritized the facilitation of long lasting, loving relationships between children and amongst families. Participating children and their families have been sharing birthday parties, sleepovers, holidays and vacations together for many years. Families are surrounded by a stable community that understands their unique challenges and loves and supports them.
PCC partners with Heart to Heart
towards supporting and encouraging adoptive families of children with histories of developmental trauma.
Monthly (cost free) education-support groups are provided to community adoptive families. Structured childcare is provided by well-trained vetted volunteers at no charge.
Coffee Connection for moms of adopted children from difficult beginnings offers moms the opportunity to leave the youngsters behind for an evening in order to receive understanding and support in the founder's living room over a cup of coffee and delicious homemade desert. This is an unstructured evening to "just be" with other moms who really understand the experience.
Regular recreational activities for families who have adopted children with developmental trauma occur throughout the year. These may include game nights, swimming and picnicking, river and park outings.
Heart to Heart facilitates community trainings intermittently throughout the year and keeps some 400 families apprised of community events they might benefit from.
