About This Resource

"We provide an alternative to probation and/or school suspension through a strengths-based intervention and group social support. The multiple-family group model allows families to work together in structured activities and facilitated discussions, and leads to a sense of community. While participants may initially be angry, isolated, discouraged, and confused, our model provides validation and nurturing so that graduates of the program leave confident and hopeful. Our mission is two-fold. We not only provide direct services to youth and their families, we also provide leadership training to professionals who wish to implement our programs and help youth in their communities."
