We're All in this Together

The Families Connected Speaker Series is provided in partnership with South Bay Families Connected and Beach Cities Health, and is co-sponsored by the Manhattan Beach Unified School District, the Redondo Beach Unified School District, and the Hermosa Beach City School District. We thank leadership at all three districts for their guidance in the selection of speaker series topics and presenters, as well as for generously housing the majority of the Speaker Series events.

Together we also offer a weekly parent support group, the Families Connected Parent Chat. led by Dr. Moe Gelbart of the Thelma McMillen Center.
