Strengthening Families Program - for Parents and Children

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is a nationally and internationally recognized parenting and family strengthening program 
for families facing challenges and those simply seeking to improve skills and communication!  SFP is an evidence-based family skills training program found to significantly reduce problem behaviors, and to improve social competencies and school performance.

SFP is a 14 week skills-development model providing a one hour session for parents, a concurrent one hour session for children/ youth, followed by a one hour session for families together where a meal is shared. Sessions involve an active curriculum of skill-building designed specifically to increase protective factors, such as parent-child communication and empathy, consistent parent monitoring and positive discipline and strategies to improve family organization and cohesion.
