Who We Are
Mission, Vision & Values
Hand in Hand Parenting helps parents when parenting gets hard. The Hand in Hand parenting approach builds resilient families and supportive communities of parents and professionals.
Hand in Hand sees a future where parents worldwide have the tools and support they need to meet their children's core needs for connection, guidance, and recovery from hard times because when families thrive, communities thrive.
Listening with Respect
Our foundation is one of respect for all with a commitment to listen fully and learn from the diverse viewpoints. We are committed to a new definition of respect for children through attentive listening, and strive to model this in all our relationships.
We place personal compassion, warmth, trust, and collaboration at the heart of our work. We believe children and parents are innately good and have the capacity to solve problems and thrive. We value work-life balance and rest.
We set ambitious goals to foster lasting change in the lives of individual families and communities to transform our society. We continually identify important questions, experiment and listen to find answers, and evaluate and document what we learn.
Honesty, openness, acceptance, and willingness to confront core issues are central to our daily work. We create safe spaces for introspection, vulnerability, questioning, and lasting learning.
We honor the rewarding and challenging work of parents, and the professional work of our colleagues and partners. Together, we will transform society.
