Our mission is to support, educate and involve parents as active participants in improving the quality of life for the children of Windham. Founded in 1997 by 15 area parents with the mission of making Windham the best place to raise a family, the Windham Parent Network has come a long way! The network aims to address the needs of area families while engaging parents in the work. We believe that parents have the power to make Windham dynamic and family friendly, plus a safe place to live, learn and grow.
