Knox County Ohio Cycling Community

The Knox County Cycling Community, a space for cyclists and those interested in advocating for cycling in Knox County, Ohio. We welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities who cycle for their health, enjoyment, or day-to-day transportation.

The Parent Support Initiative provides parent education and support, free of charge, to parents and caregivers living or working in Knox County using The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P). Classes, workshops and one-on-one coaching are available in person and virtually. Every parent will not need every level of Triple P, but every parent can benefit from some level of Triple P.
