Strong Families empowers parents in their natural and learned abilities to be loving and protective parents while promoting healthy child development, supporting and enhancing their journey to self-sufficiency, self-realization and self-fulfillment. Our work is conducted through home visiting and peer group learning services utilizing research-based parenting curriculum, trauma-informed services, child sex abuse prevention training, and promoting positive interaction and communication amongst caregivers and children. Strong Families also offers other developmental opportunities for parents, including book clubs, volunteer hours, peer mentoring, college tours, and field trips.
