Positive Family Connections

Community Wellness Circles

Community Wellness Circles help bolster Black families — particularly those led by single women — in two ways: by focusing on improving the relationship Black youth have with their parents or guardians, and by providing a safe space where adults who want to parent more effectively can de-stress, share challenges and work on healing themselves. The program is supported by grants from King County’s Best Starts for Kids and City of Seattle’s Family Support Services program.

How it works

Being a single parent or guardian is incredibly difficult work, yet there are few available outlets where parents can learn how to move beyond stress and disappointment and embrace hope, support and the promise of a better future. Our weekly Wellness Healing Circles provide that healing space. Currently, our Wellness Circles are offered virtually, making it convenient for parents and guardians to participate.

We focus on teaching the building blocks that make up a healthy quality life, emphasizing parenting, conflict-resolution and empowerment skills. Our facilitators also connect vulnerable adults to vital community resources to alleviate food and housing insecurities, schedule health care or provide computers or other tech assistance.

Sharing hopes and dreams

Our Community Wellness Circles offer consistency and a safe place for mothers and guardians to share hopes and dreams, offer emotional support and work through solutions.These single-gender caring small group spaces are led by a trained facilitator, usually a Black woman who is a parent herself.
