Family Strengthening

Family strengthening and parent skills training are intended to support families in developing healthy environments for their children, to enhance parenting strategies, to promote positive interactions between parents and children, and to help family members navigate social service systems. Missouri Project LAUNCH believes that when families feel supported and respected and have access to effective resources and supports, they are better equipped to care for their children and meet their needs. Efforts to support families include the implementation of parent cafés, evidence-based parent education program, and embedding the Strengthening Families Framework Protective Factors in the community.
