Often we tell the stories of our clients’ residential treatment, the center and history of our organizational service. However, over the years, we have been adding programs that expand the continuum of care, including prevention services in the elementary schools of four different school districts; Spring Branch ISD, Alief ISD, Spring ISD and HISD. We call our program Strengthening Families, developed around a curriculum that supports parents and children exploring resiliency and strong family bonding. This past fall, the program was delivered in Spanish to Pine Shadows Elementary, Lewis Elementary and to the Christian Ministry Family Medical Health USA. The virtual classes consisted of parenting skills, children’s life skills and family skills taught through video and engaging conversation. Each was delivered with flexibility and adaptive curriculum, based on meeting the family where they were, while keeping them engaged. Our team of Tiffany Canales, Luz Mosquera and Mayda Diaz represent youth and parent prevention services expertise. They are all bi-lingual, expanding our service area and broadening our reach.
Please take a moment to hear from the parents of Pine Shadows Elementary in the Spring Branch ISD system, as they record their experiences and the lasting reflections of their participation in Strengthening Families.
Strengthening Families is just one way we develop skills and tools around lives resilient to substance use disorder.
