What They Do:

Equip families struggling to care for their child with special needs with the necessary emotional support, system navigation assistance, skills and tools so that the whole family thrives. Comprehensive services include one-on-one mentorship, parenting education, expert workshops, developmental screenings, monthly support groups, and social and recreational events for families.

ParentsCAN works with parents when challenges arise in their child’s education, health, behavior, or development. Many families served find that their child’s challenges can be quickly addressed.

For those children whose challenges rise to the level of a special need, ParentsCAN offers more. They are the only Family Resource Center in Napa County providing services and support free of charge to families of children of all ages (birth to 26) and all disabilities (physical, cognitive, behavioral and emotional).

ParentsCAN serves over 1,100 Napa County families every year. If you have a concern about your child, call us. We are here to help.

  • Infant formula

When my family was in crisis, ParentsCAN welcomed me with open arms. Our problems weren’t too big for them. I received support and understanding with empathy and compassion. I could not have done it alone.
