New Session of Strengthening Families Program Starting Soon!

Brady BunchYou may remember the famous family meetings from the Brady Bunch television show and they actually had it right! Learning how to hold effective family meetings is just one aspect of the Strengthening Families Program that is offered through Cortland Prevention Resources.

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.

A new session of the Strengthening Families Program kicks off on October 1 and runs through mid-November. 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.

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