JOIN US IN OUR MISSION
Families gain what they need to be successful when five key protective factors are robust in their lives and communities. The Strengthening Families Initiative and Protective Factors Framework™ promotes optimal child development and reduces the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. Contact us to get your free copy of the national Strong Families booklet—everyday tips for keeping your family strong, even in stressful times.
Our nationally-certified trainers offer the “Bringing the Protective Factors to Life in Your Work”series, and other learning opportunities ranging from a 30-minute overview of Strengthening Families to a 5-hour session for in-home family educators. Five different workshops are offered annually, all approved by WV STARS Professional Development System for Early Care and Education, and for Social Work Continuing Education.
