Parent Link

Copy of what does parent link mean to your family_

At the end of March, 2020, Parent Link’s funding will not be renewed. With that change, the Town of Hinton is currently in the process of applying for new funding to continue to offer services for children and families.

As we work through the application process, we want to know what programming and services are important to your family. Your input will help us shape our plans moving forward.
