Fiesta Cristiana se encuentra en Apex, Carolina del Norte y brinda servicios a familias Hispano/ Latinas en la parte occidental del condado de Wake, incluyendo Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Apex y Cary. Además de ser miembro de la Parroquia Cooperativa de la Iglesia Metodista Unida de Apex, Fiesta Cristiana se enfoca en apoyar el éxito de los niños, jóvenes adultos y sus familias. A través de Círculos de Padres y Paternidad Efectiva, los padres comprenden el crecimiento y desarrollo de sus hijos (especialmente los menores de 5 años) y el comportamiento de sus hijos. Los padres participantes comprenden sus propias respuestas al comportamiento de sus hijos y desarrollan estrategias para ayudarlos a tener éxito en la escuela. Ambos programas se realizan en español.

Fiesta Cristiana is located in Apex, NC and serves Hispanic/Latino families in western Wake County, including Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Apex, and Cary. In addition to being a member of Apex United Methodist Church Cooperative Parish, Fiesta Cristiana focuses on supporting the success of children, young adults, and their families. Through the Building Family Support programs Parenting Circles and Effective Parenting, parents will understand the growth and development of their children (especially those under five years of age) and the behavior of their children. Participating parents will understand their own responses to their children’s behavior and develop strategies to help them be successful in school. Both programs are conducted in Spanish.

The Building Family Support programs are funded by Wake County Smart Start and managed by Fiesta Cristiana.
