Parent and Family Programs

Sometimes families need extra help. We are here to help family members grow existing strengths and nurture their relationships.

Strengthening Families Program

The Strengthening Families Program for parents and youth is delivered over seven or fourteen weeks in parent, youth, and family sessions that are highly interactive and include role-playing, discussions, learning games, and family projects. This family skills program is designed to delay the onset of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, increase resistance to peer pressure, and improve parent management skills. Families are provided with dinner, free babysitting, transportation (if needed), and a $100 Visa Gift Card upon graduation.
