*STRONG Family Workshops
The words of our past participants say it best " There is a wealth of information and resources to be obtained, this isn't your average parenting workshop!" Our strong families program has something for every parent; participate in hands on activities, share as a part of a focus group, create a toolkit to take home of valuable resources and gain valuable insight from some of your own peers on parenting tips. Our workshops focus on helping children succeed in the area of academics, home life and peer interaction. Come join us in a dialogue on what makes strong families!
