The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) helps families give their children what they need to thrive. It’s about taking advantage of your unique strengths as a parent and ensuring you have the skills and supports you need to make sure your child, and your family as a whole, are safe, secure, and happy.

Parents and youth attend classes together, learning parenting skills and youth life and refusal skills. Sessions last a total of 2.5 hours each week. This free program is for youth ages 7-17 with free childcare for children under that range. A free dinner will be provided for all families each week before sessions begin.

  Training Opportunities

Life-Saving Training Sessions

Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. QPR Suicide Prevention Training is offered to high schools, junior high schools, communities, or any group interested in Montgomery County and the surrounding area.
Please contact us to set up training!

Trauma Informed Care (TIC) trainings are offered to communities, organizations, and individuals on a regular basis. The purpose of this training is to reduce or eliminate the possibility of re-traumatization. Talking directly about a trauma isn’t necessarily the best option so join us to learn practical skills to help you and those around you.
Please contact us to set up training!
