The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is an evidence-based prevention program for parents and children ages 3-5, 6-11 and 12-16 in higher risk families. SFP consists of parenting skills, children's life skills, and family skills training courses taught together in fourteen 2-hour group sessions. The class is preceded by a meal that includes informal family time and group leader coaching. SFP was designed in 14 sessions to promote behavior change in high risk families. Our SFP will be held on Thursday nights beginning in January 2017.
