Support Families

How can your program help families thrive and receive the support they need?

A great way to increase family engagement and ensure it trickles down to improve the lives of program youth is to connect families to educational and community resources and opportunities. These resources and opportunities should be provided in response to their questions or concerns for themselves and their children. In addition, there should be opportunities for families to share their strengths and teach, inform and support others.
