Perhaps you’re looking for a personal network of parents and friends. If so, check out our ideas for connecting with others in your neighborhood. If you want to learn more about parenting, we’ve got classes and instruction and support for parenting. If you’re considering furthering your education, you’ll find practical resources for ESL courses, GED preparation, literacy classes and technology and computer instruction.
