WHO WE ARE

In 1974, The Junior League of Fort Worth formed the Tarrant County Child Abuse Task Force in response to the alarming pervasiveness of child abuse and neglect within its community. In response to this call to action and under the direction of the agency’s first board president, Beverly Smith Snyder, The Parenting Guidance Center (PGC) was established and later incorporated on May 14, 1975.

Through the generosity of the Sid W. Richardson Foundation, Junior League of Fort Worth, and Tarrant County MHMR, PGC held its grand opening on December 5, 1975 and served four clients during its first month of operations.

At TPC, we believe that though parenting education and support, family, individual and clinical counselling, and career and financial coaching/ training, we are able to create pathways that strengthen the families, parents, individuals we serve. Since December 5, 1975, TPC has served over 600,000 clients.
