Strong Families

CCA’s Strong Families Program strives to reduce violence and other forms of abusive behavior by teaching strategies that strengthen family relationships. CCA trains neighborhood leaders to help their peers incorporate certain strategies into their familial relationships. The leaders undergo a five week, five topic curriculum taught by trainers who, themselves, helped to develop the curriculum. The curriculum includes the following topics: Family Values, Family Communication, Stress Management, Parenting Styles/Positive Parenting and Understanding Our Youth, an instruction that helps parents understand the challenges that youth face ranging from peer pressure to gang awareness
