Newtown Parent Connection, Inc. Mission

The mission of the Newtown Parent Connection is to educate and empower the community in the prevention of substance abuse and to embrace families in crisis.

Your support will help us to sustain:

  • our Hope and Support Group for parents and caregivers impacted by a loved one's substance use
  • our Bereavement Group for those who have suffered the loss of a child or a loved one
  • our Educational Forums designed to share best practices and cutting edge information from a wide range of experts in mental health, parenting, and substance abuse prevention and treatment
  • access to critical mental health care and substance abuse treatment services for the members of our community 
  • and of course, our one-to-one peer support designed to help caregivers navigate the complexities of getting their loved one into treatment
