The Parent Connection is a not-for-profit, non-discriminatory organization dedicated to supporting families and their young children. Members include stay-at-home and working parents throughout McHenry County.

The social and educational development of children is promoted through playgroups, field trips and holiday parties sponsored by The Parent Connection.

The group has been in existence since 1980 and is run by volunteers. Funding for The Parent Connection comes primarily from member’s annual dues of $20 per family. Members are encouraged to become involved in activities and to take an active role in determining the group’s activities and direction.
