Tijuana Parenting Program

Tijuana, Mexico

The Tijuana Parenting Program serves refugee and migrant parents at the US-Mexico border 

Supporting parent mental health

The Tijuana Parenting Program aims to bolster the mental and physical health of migrant parents and children by offering caregivers sheltering at the US-Mexico border critical support, education and coping strategies. Taught by certified trauma informed parent educators, the workshop series is informed by best practices in trauma healing, emotional regulation techniques and nonviolent communication, and has already served over 1,000 caregivers at the US-Mexico border.

Nest Global is honored to partner with pediatrician and Stanford Global Health Faculty Fellow Dr. Xin She to study the impact of our Tijuana Parenting Program, which is often described as a transformative experience by program graduates. 

Our work with Dr. She aims to quantify the program’s success – an important step in expanding our parenting programs to other camps and shelters around the globe. Read more about our work with Stanford and Dr. She in the article below.

Supporting the Mental Health of Migrant Families Through Trauma-Informed Parenting Classes

“The parenting classes have been a great support for me and my family. They help me stay calm in moments of stress. Before coming to class I would yell at my children a lot. Now I remember to breathe and help see what my children are needing. Since we started going to the classes I feel more connected to my family. I get now that it’s not their fault they are here, that we’re all doing our best and it’s not easy. When we leave the Nest and the parenting classes we are always happier and a little lighter.” 

- Martha, mother of 3 children ages 3, 7 & 12
