Goal #18: The West End has the kind of parent and family support network that helps parents be the best for their children and themselves.
This includes providing good role models around co-parenting, healthy relationships, and a strong community support network of coaches, teachers, and others in the community who care about and support children.

Host at least monthly events for families
Create things for parents to do WITH their children
Provide good co-parenting support and models of success
