Strengthening Families Program
Join other families for fun, interactive activities that help families build on strengths, help parents to show love and set limits, and help kids develop skills for a positive future.
Registration is required.
Free and for families with youth between the ages of 6 and 11, starting September 14th! It will be offered in English and Spanish.
This program helps parents connect with other parents, understand their youth more, and communicate better as a family. Many of the youth have found that this program helped them to resist peer pressure, taught them about drugs and alcohol, and helped their families connect.
It really is a great opportunity for families. The only requirement is that the family has a child in the age group of the program. When families graduate from the program, they receive a $100 Visa Gift card. Each week the families receive a free dinner and free babysitting if there are siblings who are too young to be in the program.
Families begin the program by eating dinner together. After dinner, the families break up into three groups: parents, youth, and babysitting where parenting skills and life skills are taught. Some of these topics include: parents - Love and Limits, making rules, consequences, and protecting against substance abuse and youth – speaking, listening and staying out of trouble. The families then come together and do family bonding games and activities around these topics.
