"Since having to take the parenting class through Alameda County Family Services

over two years ago while my husband and I

were separated and had been through 

a dramatic international child custody battle,

I am very pleased to say we reconciled and are a happily united family unit."

—  Karyn Krause Amore

"We learned a lot from you, and in the class. We will be better parents and grandparents for it. And thank you for all the good work you are doing in the world.

It makes us feel good knowing that so many parents and children are benefitting from your work."

— John Hendee
