Family Education & Support

Learning For Life

Our Family Education and Support programs aim to connect families, build support networks and enhance social involvement. These programs help support children and families through relationship and skill building, which are foundations of protective factors that contribute to thriving families.

Services include Parent Education & Support, Summer Programs, After-School Programs, Teen Skill-Building and Grief Support. These programs are offered in schools, at community facilities, or on one of our campuses. To learn more about these programs, please click on the link below or select from the drop-down menu above.
