Strengthening Families is curriculum and research based. The focus of the education is enhancing communication skills between family members and helping the family to increase their ability to express their feelings and concerns to one another.
Every family struggles from time to time with these issues. This is why the program is so practical for any family.
This program is open to any family in Sussex County. There is no cost to participating families.
