SFP is for all families – not just at-risk families.
Families with babies and toddlers
Families with preschool-aged children
Parents and children attend 14 weekly group sessions, learning parenting and life skills both separately and together. A weekly meal provides families with the opportunity for skills practice, peer-to-peer support, and coaching.
Community-based workshops and classes
Education and support for the whole family
SFP has been shown to significantly improve parenting skills and family relationships, reduce problem behaviors including substance abuse, and improve social competencies and academic performance.
