Parenting Support

Claris Health Parenting Support Program. Learn more about our parenting support, and classes (including court-mandated) in LA County and virtually around the nation.

Welcome to the Claris Health Parenting Support Program!

We are available to support you and your family from pregnancy until your child turns 5. Through informative classes (Childbirth Preparation, Potty Training, Sleep Training, Safety classes, Developmental Stages, and Ways to Have Fun with Your Child), we are here for you every step of the way. In addition to our free classes, we offer one on one sessions where you meet with an advocate to discuss any specific parenting questions you may have. Finally, we are also here for your material needs. Diapers and wipes are available to you twice a month and you’ll be allowed to look through our Baby Store for clothing, gear, and other necessities. See below for information on our court-mandated parenting classes.
