Strengthening Families Program

This free evidence based 14-week program brings out parents and their teenage children (12-16 yrs) to learn communication, empathy, and problem solving skills that will strengthen their relationships. The program starts with a family meal, some child care and transportation support is available, and we celebrate the family’s hard work at the end with a graduation ceremony.

This is the first time we are partnering with Family Futures and bringing this program to the Southside. Below is a link to the Millhurst locations poster as well as the programs brochure and group outline of what is covered in the program.
