The Door County Partnership for Children and Families is offering a community-wide event to give area parents a chance to come together. The very first "Parent Cafe" in Sturgeon Bay will be held on January 22nd from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The cafe is being offered as part of an initiative to raise successful children by creating successful parents. Chad Welch, the family engagement leader at the organization, said connecting parents with those in similar situations would help create efficiency when deciding what is best for them.
If the cafe is successful, Welch hopes to hold at least one more similar event in 2019, with the possibility of another if all goes well. There will be a free family meal from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m., and the organization will offer free on-site childcare as well.
