Family Development

IMG_1810This branch runs programs and activities that offer families qualified guidance in the areas of marriage and parenting relationships. The program director has the qualifications necessary to deliver  best practices in family dynamics such as, roles in marriage, adolescent development, extended family issues and conflict resolution.

The Family Development program establishes partnerships with other organizations who offer similar services and/or can assist the families we serve.

The leadership of this branch also helps the other branches of FamilyWorks in the development of their programs.  This is done to ensuring the preservation of a holistic approach, designed to strengthen families, throughout the organization.
