Q. How much does it cost to join a TAPS Group?

To make sure that TAPS programs are accessible to every parent in the Triangle, we use a scaled program fee model from $55 to $155 that allows you to choose the amount you are able to pay.

A non-refundable $15 deposit will also be required to reserve your place in the TAPS group you’ve selected. The remaining balance of your program fee will be due prior to the first meeting of your group.

NOTE: We never want anyone to miss out on a chance to receive support, so if paying a program fee is a hardship for your family, regardless of your income level, you can apply for financial assistance after you’ve completed the registration form.


We use your program fees to help pay for our day-to-day operation expenses. For example, we use funds to help pay for insurance, website maintenance, and manage program-related work (e.g., coordinate groups; communicate with group members; train group leaders; provide materials for group leaders).

Please note we are primarily funded by donors to help sustain and maintain our quality programming, and we are not funded by any state or federal grants. If you’d like to make a one-time donation or make a recurring donation to support our mission, please click here.
