Our Mission Statement:
“To provide peer support and tools for families to help them work through unavoidable crises, build lasting relationships, create a harmonious home, and prepare children for life.”
Because I Love You, The Parent and Youth Support Groups, has been helping families in crisis since 1982. Support group meetings are attended by parents who have children (of all ages) with behavioral issues such as a negative attitudes, truancy, drug and/or alcohol abuse, running away, and verbal and physical abuse.
Our program works both parents and youth, offering support and guidance to improve communication, promote structure and cooperation in the home, and achieve our goal of family preservation. Meetings are run completely by volunteers, and they are a place where families can find support without judgment or feeling embarrassed by situations they may feel they have no control over.
The Because I Love You program produces positive results, all free of charge. Read the testimonials of parents who have attended the support group meetings at How Because I Love You Changed My Life. For over 30 years, thousands of parents have attended our support groups and become “Success Stories” . . . We have seen runaways return home, truants return to school and graduate, children who were dependent on substances become clean and sober, and families that were experiencing crisis and separation reunite!
