Parents Anonymous® Inc. provides training and technical assistance, develops publications and conducts research on meaningful Parent and Shared Leadership, systems reform and effective community-based strategies to strengthen families.

Integral to our mission and operations is the unique partnership established with Parents Anonymous® Parent Leaders.
