Strong Families

The Strong Families Program provides support in the community through Parent Cafés and System Navigation.

Parent Cafés:

Parent Cafés are physically and emotionally safe spaces where parents and caregivers talk about the challenges and victories of raising a family. Through individual deep self-reflection and peer-to-peer learning, participants explore their strengths, learn about the Protective Factors, and create strategies from their own wisdom and experiences to help strengthen their families

The Strengthening Families™ Protective Factors are:

  • Resilience: Parent Resilience
  • Relationships: Positive Social Connections
  • Support: Concrete Support in Times of Need
  • Knowledge: Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development
  • Communication: Social and Emotional Competence

System Navigation Services:

Systems of care can be daunting or overwhelming for families, especially if they are in crisis. Our System Navigators will help families understand, cope with, and learn how to navigate local systems of care. This also ensures overwhelmed families will enter the right door the first time so they will be more likely to receive the services that they need.
