The Family Resiliency Program (FRP) artfully combines our community-based programs to form a family-centered support for at-risk children and their families. The FRP delivers year round, high motivation, structured skill building programming designed to strengthen child-parent-family relationships. 


The program serves children and adolescents ages 5 to 17 struggling to manage severe, persistent, social, emotional, and behavioral issues. 


Our program offers: 


  • Help to caregivers as they manage the issues related to compassion fatigue.

  • A trauma-informed program that promotes communication, interpersonal, and community skill development.

  • An integrated alternative to respite that facilitates family cohesion and wellbeing.

  • A range of family engagement options connecting participants to the community through a creative community reinforcement approach. 

  • Stability and growth for participants.

  • An integrated, community based alternative to expensive, out of home placement. 


Our program includes:


  • Child skill development groups, parent skills training, and joint family activities/support

  • Groups of 5-8 participants, forming groups of elementary, middle, and high school students.

  • Academic support, homework help, and tutoring.

  • Communication and interpersonal skills training.

  • Recreational therapy.

  • High interest outdoor adventure activities. 

  • Community and life skills training.

  • Education of mental health issues and care.

  • Case management.

  • Referral/coordination of individual and family therapy.
