The Military Strengthening Families Program (MSFP) is an evidence-based family skills training program for high-risk and general population families that has a member who is active or inactive in the military. Parents and youth attend weekly MSFP skills classes together, learning parenting skills and youth life and refusal skills. The program will begin with a family dinner that Cape Assist provides. After dinner, the parents and youth will separate into workshops where weekly lessons and trainings will be held. The parents and youth will rejoin each other for the remainder of the program, where a family project or lesson will be done.
The program is a 7-week or 14-week program, depending on the age group, and is FREE to attend. Upon completion of the program, families will be rewarded with a gift card.
If you have received a flyer for the program, please refer to the age group to ensure your family is eligible for that specific program. If you are interested in being part of the next available program, please complete the form, select "add to waitlist" in the drop-down menu, and select the appropriate age group. Once a program with the selected age group is available, a Cape Assist staff member will reach out with more information and complete the program enrollment process.
