To enrich children’s development while supporting their families through the journey of parenthood.


Hear what some in our community say about us …

Our Families

Julie and Jonathan Lanford

“The advice and resources we’ve received through Imprints Cares’ educational seminars and parent education sessions have helped us be more confident parents.
The seminars and sessions help spread the most effective and evidence-based recommendations.
This helps to break cycles that aren’t helpful and introduce parenting strategies that will raise more confident, educated and healthy children. That makes our
community a better place
for everyone!”

Our Teachers

Lori Richards, Mentor, Teacher & Volunteer

“I find it very rewarding to create enrichment activities and field trips at Imprints Cares. Not only do they bring the fun, but they also provide learning experiences throughout the summer and to the before and after school programs! Mentoring children has always been an important part of my life. Imprints Cares gives me the avenue to be part of a wonderful team to make that happen. I love children of all ages and I learn from them as much as they do from me!”
