What is the Parenting Communities Program?

Parenting Communities is a program provided by the citizens of Leelanau County (through the 2019 EC millage) and the Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department. The goal of Parenting Communities is simply to help us all be the parents we dream of being.

Parenting Communities of Leelanau County seeks to promote healthy children living in stable, nurturing families, supported by strong communities that provide comprehensive, supportive services.
