Parent Resources

Titusville Pediatric Services

At Parrish Children’s Center, we care about each and every family who walks through the front door. We will go above and beyond to help you find what you are looking for. If you are looking for something else that we do not offer here, we will do our best to provide you with community resources or refer you to one of partner agencies. We pride ourselves in family support and education.

As parents, you are the single best advocate for your child. The Children’s Center is here because of parents telling us that’s what their children needed. We want to be a partner with you in advocating for your child. Please call 321-264-0855 if you need support or a listening ear.
