Parent Child Center

MIDDLEBURY-The Addison County Parent Child Center celebrates 30 years of supporting adolescents and young families with a party at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury on June 25 at 7:30 p.m.

Guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar as they dance to the music of "blusion" band, Deep Freyed.

The Parent Child Center was founded in 1980, as one of four national pilot projects of the Federal Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Programs.

Thirty years later, the PCC offers a variety of effective support and education programs for families with young children and at-risk adolescents. Its cost-effective programs not only help individual families; its coordination of services benefits the entire community. In large part due to the efforts of the PCC, Addison County now has one of the lowest young adolescent pregnancy rates in the country.

The PCC offers child care to at-risk families, home visits, parent education, work readiness training, early childhood and family services, alternative education, and prevention programs designed to reduce teen pregnancy. The PCC served as a state-wide model for the 15 parent/child centers that now exist across Vermont, and the PCC supports the consortium of the Vermont Parent Child Center Network.

The Parent Child Center Anniversary Celebration will be held on Friday, June 25 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $25, are available through the THT Box Office by calling 382-9222.
