For more than 30 years the Port Washington Parent Resource Center, a parent led co-operative, has been a cornerstone in the community. The PRC offers classes in music, art, dance and a variety of other areas. The PRC also offers many social opportunities for parents, family activities and events, and a place for new families to find support.
The PRC boasts professionally taught classes with trained experts in their respective fields but the remainder of the organization is almost completely run by members.
“There are countless ways to participate and many of them can be done at home and on the member’s own time. It is a very easy commitment to fulfill,” said Lisa Grossman, executive director of the PRC.
“There is such a diversity of skill and talents that our members bring and we are so proud these talents make the PRC the first choice for families in the Port Washington area,” she added. "The PRC views the participation of its members a key to success and offers an opportunity of its members to connect with each other and the community."
The Parent Resource Center is located downstairs at the Landmark on Main Street. For more information, call 516-767-3808 or visit the organization's website.
