Burlington program strengthens military families

Oct 23, 2014 10:20AM, Published by Community News Service, Categories: Today, News



Prevention Plus of Burlington County is sponsoring Military Family Nights through their Strengthening Families Program.

The Strengthening Families Program is a nationally recognized program designed to build on the strengths of youth and their families in order to address the challenges of children and adolescents ages 9-14 and their caregivers.

Strengthening Families is conducted in seven sessions held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A family meal and childcare for younger siblings is provided at no cost. After the family meal, separate simultaneous meetings for caregivers and youth are conducted and at the conclusion of the evening the families reunite for a family activity that will provide opportunities to share and to strengthen the skills that have learned. After the seven sessions have been conducted, follow up meetings for renewal and fun may be provided.

Families earn incentives in the form of gift certificates to local retail stores up to $150 per family. These incentives are given at various intervals during the seven sessions. Please refer to page on incentives for further explanation.
