The Family Strengthening Network (FSN) empowers families to achieve their dreams and be successful in all areas of life. Through free, personal and confidential sessions with a trained Family Advocate, families develop a clear plan to accomplish their goals and receive all the tools, resources and opportunities necessary to complete their plan.
FSN offers educational seminars and small groups in a variety of areas that are critical to the well-being of the family. FSN also provides family fun events and community volunteering opportunities which reinforce the relationship bonds within families.
The Family Strengthening Network aims to improve the family unit as a whole, thus improving the quality of life of all family members. FSN empowers families in the following targeted areas: financial, employment, health & wellness, academic excellence, service-learning, and healthy relationships.
FSN trains Family Advocates to coach families to self-identify their needs, while empowering them to successfully achieve their goals. Family Advocates are dedicated to walking alongside families, thinking outside the box for solutions, and providing tools and services that families use in reaching their goals.
Goal Setting Techniques
Family Advocates operate within churches, schools, community centers, workplaces, and other locations. This enables the Family Advocate to seamlessly establish rapport with families and connect them to supports within their existing community.
