In 2017 a group of Pamlico County collaborative partners enthusiastically served children and families through the Strengthening Families Program (SFP).
A total of 12 families, that is 13 children and 8 caregivers graduated from the SFP in 2017, our inaugural year of implementation.
SFP is a family support program for all families, serving those with a child between the ages of 3-16 years of age. The program serves 8-10 families for 14 weekly sessions, followed by 2 booster sessions. Each of the 2 hour sessions starts with a Family Meal followed by “break out” groups for Adult Skills and Child Skills, the session wraps up with Family Skills where the family gathers back together to have fun and practice the skills they have learned.
What a difference SFP can make in children and families while having in and focusing on new skills such as communication, positive praise, disciple, family connections, behavior changes, substance abuse prevention and much more.
