The Parenting Center, a Fort Worth-based nonprofit that provides services to families and people in need to prevent child abuse and neglect, recently expanded programs and services to Arlington, thanks to a new partnership with the Junior League of Arlington through its Center for Community Service.
The Parenting Center has provided parenting education and skills-based training throughout the Fort Worth since 1974, but the agency has not served the Arlington community since 2009.
“The Center for Community Service is our new community impact initiative centering around abuse prevention,” said Julie Reinhardt, president of the Junior League of Arlington. “The Parenting Center has a team of trained volunteers available, along with the use of meeting, event and office space to help change the city of Arlington and its surrounding areas.”
The two organizations celebrated the new partnership at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 12.
