About the Network


The Parenting Success Network is a coalition of organizations in Linn and Benton counties dedicated to strengthening and supporting families. Network organizations provide educational programs and support services to enhance parents’ ability to raise healthy children in caring homes.

  • The coalition comes together to link community resources and families through a coordinated planning process. We strive to offer a wide variety of parenting education opportunities to meet the needs of a diverse parent population.
  • Our programs work with many family situations, from those who seek to move from good to excellent parenting, to those who struggle with the demands of parenthood. Our families come from all walks of life, and share the joys and frustrations of parenthood.
  • There are many kinds of multi-session classes; at some classes parents attend with their children and at others parents attend by themselves.
  • Other programs offer a higher degree of support for families who qualify for their services and home visiting programs.
  • Parenting advice as well as information about all parenting programs and local resources is available by phone and through this website.
  • We are also a resource for parenting educators, offering access to curriculum materials, training opportunities and information about best practices.
