EVERYONE!! Parents, caretakers, soon to be parents, and supporters/ friends of our organization.

Possible Activities:

  • Family Game Night
  • Networking Lunch
  • Trip to Port Discovery, Science Museum, or Art Museum
  • Toy Exchange

Other needs we strive to address:

  • On-Site childcare for UMB-related events
  • "It Takes a Village" Co-operative Study Groups
