Circle of Parents is a national network of parent-led self-help groups, where parents and caregivers share ideas, celebrate successes and address the challenges surrounding parenting. West Virginia launched Circle of Parents in 2012, and the statewide network now includes 36 sponsoring organizations and has trained more than 100 group facilitators.

Circle of Parents groups can be open to the general community or tailored to parents who share particular interests or circumstances. All groups agree to meet these standards:

  •  Groups use the mutual self-help model.
  • Groups are non-judgmental and promote a positive approach to parenting.
  • Participation is free, confidential and anonymous.
  • A trained facilitator and parent leader facilitate the support groups.
  • Groups meet two to four times a month.
  • The childcare needs of participants are addressed.
