STRENGTHENING FAMILIES PROGRAM
(SFP)

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is an acclaimed evidence-based training initiative designed to enhance family skills for both high-risk and general-population families. Recognized both nationally and internationally, SFP offers a unique opportunity for parents and youth to grow together through specialized weekly classes.

What We Offer

 

Weekly Gatherings

Each program session begins with a communal family dinner provided by Cape Assist, setting the stage for a night of learning and bonding. After dinner, parents and youth split into separate groups to engage in tailored workshops that focus on parenting techniques and youth life skills, including effective refusal strategies. The evening concludes with a combined session where families come together to work on a project or lesson, applying what they've learned in a practical setting.

milies and brighter futures!
