Strengthening Families Project (SFP) is a 14-week parent/teen program. Families that participate in this program are Mothers, Fathers, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, and Guardians with their children ages 12-16. The program is designed to coach families in a safe healthy environment. Using a collaborative learning process, we teach parents and teens how to communicate better, and we emphasize cultural differences among the different generations. A family meal is prepared and used as a venue to eat dinner together and have meaningful conversations. Separate skill building groups are facilitated for the adults and teens. At the end of the session, the families are joined together to share what they learned. We also offer fieldtrips for SFP families to use as a bonding experience (Circus, Baseball Games, Movies and other outings).
