Do you believe that the world is making life harder for families? Despite society's expectations of obtaining higher education and a successful career, it seems like we're constantly struggling to keep up with the demands of life. For some, the cost of childcare may even outweigh the benefits of working, making it difficult to balance work and family life.

We're on a mission to be the change, families across our country need- but we need your help!

The old Briarwood/ Lincoln College Campus in Southington, Connecticut has sat vacant and abandoned for years. A place that was once built brick by brick by one of our former community members in hopes of providing women with educational opportunities, has remained lifeless. Our vision is to revitalize it into a hub where families can connect, receive support, and not just survive but thrive in all stages of their parenting journey. The existing property is equipped with all the necessary amenities we require to host our various support services and foster a sense of community. Here's how we plan to transform the space:

  • Communal areas feature art and research labs, an on-site child care hub, indoor and outdoor play structures, a teen center, sensory rooms, and more!

  • The daycare center operating from 6 am to 10 pm aims to address the lack of flexible early morning and late evening care options in the state.

  • Transitional Housing for single mothers and youth transitioning out of foster care.

  • Therapeutic, Lactation, Occupational Therapy and other Professional offices

    A Perinatal Wellness & Birth Center 

  • A Community Care Center

  • Before & After School Programs 

  • Community Workshops & Events

  • Youth & Adult Classes, Clubs, & Programs 

  • And more!

UPDATE: 3/1/2024
