Lighten Your Load

Parenting – one of the toughest jobs in the world – is so much easier when you belong to a strong community of families. Some of us are lucky enough to find supportive communities on our own. But most moms and dads could still use a bit more help with the everyday challenges of raising our children. That’s where ParentsTogether comes in. We are a community of parents developing creative tools and resources that help you and your kids thrive.

A Stronger Future

When we join together as parents, we can make a difference on the issues that matter most to our kids and families — things like parental leave, childcare, and quality education.

As a national, parent-led organization with community members in every state, ParentsTogether helps parents stay up to date on the issues affecting their families so that all of us can work together to build a stronger future for our children.

Mission & Vision

ParentsTogether is a national non-profit organization that provides resources, connections, and community that help all kids and parents thrive. As we unite parents together, we are creating a force for change on issues affecting kids and families.

Core Beliefs

We are each other’s best resources

There is always another parent who’s been there before and might be able to help—you should never have to go it alone.

When we’re connected, we can help each other lighten the load

We all need help sometimes, and we all have at least a little bit to offer. A group like ParentsTogether can help us find each other so that we can better share our time, support, gear, and best parenting tips.

We have a lot of economic power

And we need to use that spending power to our advantage! Joining together nationally gives us the opportunity to negotiate deals and discounts that benefit everyone’s bottom line.

Together, we are an unstoppable force for change

When we raise our voices together, we have the power to create big shifts in the systems that make it so hard to raise a family in the US – starting with unpaid maternity leave all the way up to the high costs of college.
