Trusted Parents and COVID-19
We want the families we serve to know that we are taking COVID-19 seriously, and that we are taking the necessary measures to keep the health and well-being of the families we serve protected. Our community include individuals who may be medically fragile, and it is our mission to do what we must to protect them. Careful consideration and motoring have been made by our Executive Director and Board of Directors on the influx of COVID-19 and the impact it has had on our community, and the unanimous decision has been made to suspend all scheduled events and programming.
Our staff will work a part-time schedule and will respond to emails and voicemail within 24-36 hours of receiving them.
Trusted Parents has decided to cancel/postpone, effective immediately, the following events and services until further notice:
All in person visits to our offices
All in person parent training and guardianship consultations.
All in person support group meeting, workshops, resource fairs, panel engagements, and conferences.
Our services, programs, and events are now hosted on a virtual platform.
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and the impact it is imposing on our community. Please look to our emails, social media accounts, and our website for updates as we do our very best to serve the community and navigate the situation at hand.
Request for Families Stories - Medicaid and Health Choice
Trusted Parents has partnered with NC Child to ensure that children, parents, and caregivers can get the health care that they need. The Medicaid and NC Health Choice programs are changing in North Carolina. It's so important that state officials understand what it's really like for families.
That is why we reaching out to parents, who have children on Medicaid and Health Choice. We want to better understand what families are going through, and how our state can make health care work better for all families.

"Trusted Parents has been great for my family. I've been to all the meetings, and it is a great experience. Just the childcare during the meetings alone is wonderful. The volunteers are very attentive to the kids. My kids love going to the children's library during the support group meetings. I have been blessed to meet other parents/caregivers that understand my situation, and who are able to offer advise. The speakers that come to meeting are very informative. I look forward to the monthly meeting"
