Community Programs

Collaboration with community-based organizations is at the heart of our mission to train and support health, mental health, and social service professionals, particularly those who work with low-income, minority and other underserved groups.

Toward this end, we provide staff training and organizational consultation to healthcare facilities, social service agencies, and academic institutions. Our goal is to help these organizations create and sustain family-centered practices that identify strengths and build resilience. In addition, we work collaboratively with community-based agencies to provide specialized professional training opportunities.
