Barnabas Health Institute for Prevention hosts Strengthening Families (SF),
a free 14-week education program for parents, grandparents and guardians,
utilizing the award-winning SF curriculum.
The SF education program assists parents and guardians in enriching existing
skills to establish a successful, healthy, substance-free future for their
child and becoming better prepared to meet the complexity of today’s
parenting challenges. Youth participants in SF practice effective communication
techniques, healthy coping strategies and skills for resisting peer pressure.
A free family dinner will be provided each week.
Free on-site child care will be provided for children under 10, gifts will
be awarded to families with regular attendance and upon completion of
the program, a graduation ceremony will be held where all participants
receive a certificate.
