Family Help Resources


There are many organizations in Linn and Benton counties offering parenting education and support to families that go beyond the guidance you can get in a class. Most of these organizations provide one-on-one parenting support through home visits. They also help families find additional resources such as financial help, housing, food and clothing, counseling, and more.
