Strengthening Families is a free 7-week family education program that helps parents learn how to effectively manage the challenges of parenting adolescents in a positive and supportive manner. Programs are available for English-speaking families and for Spanish-speaking families.

Sessions begin with dinner and are followed by an hour where parents and youth work separately. Parents will focus on using love and limits, building bridges, protecting against substance abuse and much more. Meanwhile some of the ideas youth will be working with are having goals and dreams, dealing with stress and handling peer pressure. The last hour is spent together giving families a chance to work together on building family communication and supporting each other’s goals.
