About Us

Since 2000, Neapolitan Family has served parents in Collier and Lee Counties. Our free monthly magazine is distributed to over 150 locations, making it the most widely distributed and read family publication serving Collier and Lee Counties.  

Our mission is simple: We want to provide our families with the best parenting resources in the area. We do this by creating award-winning editorial content in our magazine, an extensive calendar of events on our website, sending a weekly newsletter with things to do for the weekend, producing annual education and summer camp guides, running a popular Back-to-School expo, and more.

Neapolitan Family sponsors numerous nonprofit and community events each year. Our signature event is our popular Back to School Expo, held each August.  

Neapolitan Family partners with Collier County Public Schools to produce an Activities Guide three times a year. Each guide provides a resource for academics, afterschool care, special attractions, sports, special needs, support groups, and more for parents of elementary school children in Collier County.

We are proud to be a member of the Parenting Media Association (PMA), a national trade association of regional parenting publications. We adhere to PMA's guidelines for high journalistic excellence and ethical business practices. This includes providing services and consulting with integrity, honesty, and respect for all business owners, not just the ones who choose to work with us.

In 2023, Neapolitan Family Publishing won four prestigious editorial and design awards at the annual Parenting Media Association (PMA) Conference. The awards recognize the exceptional quality of the magazine's content and design, which have consistently provided insightful and informative articles for families in Southwest Florida.

Neapolitan Family is a women-owned and women-operated business.
