Imagine a world where every child’s natural strengths are nurtured, so they realize their endless potential.

Parenting is the most challenging, yet rewarding, job you will ever have. There’s no instruction manual, no employee handbook, no checklist to tell you what to do. Raising a child isn’t getting any easier… and there’s no “right” way to do it.

As the challenges parents face increase and become even more complex, parents are desperate for real help and support.

For over 170 years Beech Acres Parenting Center has been serving parents, families, and children by adapting to an ever-changing landscape. Meeting parents, families, and children where they are. Helping them discover what’s strong with them, not what’s wrong with them.

Today, we begin our next century of serving the community.

We combine science and compassion to deliver innovative solutions that equip adults to meet children’s needs and cultivate their strengths.

We’re committed to helping all the adults in a child’s world discover their strengths so they can open their hearts and minds to the potential of raising capable, caring, and contributing children. That one adult may be a parent, but it could be a grandmother, family friend, teacher, foster parent, or mentor. Whoever and wherever you are, Beech Acres is there for you. By inspiring these adults in a child’s life, we’ll elevate the community and the world.

It takes just one adult to build resilience and hope in a child. Together, let’s make the world a brighter place for children to grow up.
