The Strengthening Families Program is a family skills training program for parents and their children.  The program is based on studies that show children grow up best when parents/caregivers communicate, provide emotional support and practice consistent discipline.  Participants learn to make these two concepts the foundation of their family life.


Each session begins with families enjoying a meal together.  Parents and children then break into separate group with children divided according to age.  Families come back together and have the opportunity to practice what they learned in their groups.
