This program is a supervised visitation program for parents with custody or safety concerns.
We offer two playgroups a week - Mondays and Thursdays - from 10:00-11:30am at the FRC in Siren. Parents, guardians, daycare providers, or grandparents bring your children to play, do crafts, and have a snack. You can play with your children and chat and network with other adults. A great chance for your little one to play and socialize. Open to all ages.

Lil's Chefs will promote healthy eating and nutrition. Come to the FRC and cook with your children. Watch your children get excited about cooking as they wear their chef's hats and aprons. We hope to get them to try new foods. There will always be something to eat and sometimes food to take home. Occasionally families will be requested to bring cooking items from home (ie: pans, bowls, storage containers). The smaller children are welcome - they can play while we cook and there is always extra food. Please RSVP for this event so we can plan the food accordingly.
