What is Strong and Connected?

It is a skills-building program offered for free to children and families in Jackson County. All families go through tough times. Sometimes families face challenges that are too difficult to overcome without the support of a caring community. The Strong and Connected Program provides a path toward hope and healing for families.

Strong and Connected is a nationally and internationally recognized evidence-based program.

Who can participate?

Youth 6-18 years and their families. Right now, we are only able to accept referrals for families that live in Jackson County but as the program continues to grow, we hope to open it up to other areas in the future.

How does it work?

Families meet for two hours once a week for 14 weeks to share a meal – and then children and parents attend their own class to work on age-appropriate activities. Topics covered include, but are not limited to: family communication, family relationships, child development, and navigating barriers.

What are some of the rewards?

• We provide dinner every week for families
• Childcare is provided for children not participating in the program
• Transportation assistance is available upon request
• Families receive incentives at each weekly meeting (ie. gift cards, small gifts, passes for community activities, etc.)
• Graduation ceremony at the end of the 14-week program
