At SJPC, I have found support and guidance to become a better father and a better person. Completing these classes have been a great achievement; I have learned new parenting techniques, and have learned from other clients as well.

- Father, 24/7 Program

Teaching at SJPC has brought such joy and fun into my life.  As a professional,  to share my knowledge and help to answer questions that lead our parents to become more effective, and more present for their children. Right now, more than ever, we all need support. I'm so glad to be a part of the SJPC team.

I am a MSW student at Fairfield University, and as part of my education I volunteer at SJPC as a case manager. At SJPC I manage my own clients and provide support to our parents. I have learned so much from my experience working with everyone at SJPC and will always be grateful to my time here!
