    Strengthening Families Program

    Dear fellow Agency:

    Prevention Connections, a program of the Family Guidance Center of Warren County, will be hosting the Strengthening Families Program, a 7-week program for families across Warren County. The Strengthening Families Program was first established in 1982 to aid parents in developing the skills needed to keep their children from using drugs and alcohol. It is an evidence-based training program providing parenting and family life skills as well as children’s social skills. Parents and children participate in SFP, both together and separately within breakout rooms. The SFP family relationship skills are useful for all families—not just those at risk. With this program, we hope to increase parental involvement, communication and family bonding while decreasing family conflict and youth depression and aggression. Meals will be provided for each session, and there will be prizes and incentives for attending.

    Prevention Connections is offering OPEN ENROLLMENT for this program ideally to families with children between the ages of 6-11 and would like to collaborate with youth from your agency.

    This program will run twice per week and meals will be provided for each session as well as incentives and prizes for attending. Free transportation is available

    A program flyer and consent form have also been included for you in this packet. Please have the consent form completed and handed in to myself, Jessica Szczepanik.

    Thank you again for your time and support!

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 732-672-7689 or via email at jszczepanik@fgcwc.org
