Have you ever thought about your family tree?  Not just the names of the people, but the characteristics of those people as well. Were they loving? Were they funny? Did they help out each other?

In the Strengthening Families program, you’ll have a chance to create your own family tree and talk about all the things that make your family stronger.

A new session of the Strengthening Families Program kicks off on February 4 and runs through March. The weekly program meets at the McEvoy BOCES Conference Building on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 8:00 and includes dinner. If you and your family are interested in participating please contact Alma Johnson at (607) 423-3437 or alma.johnson@dfs.state.ny.us to register for the upcoming session.

Strengthstrengthening-family-logoening Families is a nationally recognized program that helps improve parenting skills and build family relationships. Families have fun as they participate in activities and games that allow them to solve problems together and discuss what makes their family strong. Strengthening Families is geared to parents and youth ages 10 to 14; childcare is provided for younger children. There is no cost to participate in the program, but registration is required.

The Strengthening Families Program is co-sponsored by OCM BOCES, Cortland Prevention Resources, Family Counseling Services, CAPCO, CCSI and PINS Diversion.
