Parenting is not an easy feat and in most cases, parents and students alike can benefit greatly from the support and resources that The Center For Family Outreach provides. We understand that parents need clear information, practical strategies, and guidance from those around them. That’s why we're here to help.
We offer a variety of parent resources like support from community partners and education surrounding adolescent cognitive development, drug and alcohol use, gender identity and sexuality, depression and self-harm, and much more… Of course, it is just as important to understand where to find specialized services and how to access these opportunities!
Divorce, separation, raising teenagers, financial difficulties and family conflict, these are all issues that can produce enormous stress for a family. Of course, these issues can impact both the parents and children alike.
Our Parent Navigators program can help develop consistent rules, strengthen communication skills and establish boundaries for the family. The Parent Navigators’ responsibility is to create a safe environment through preventative wellness practices while helping parents grow.
To register for this program, simply submit a referral form for yourself or a parent you know that could benefit from our expertise and resources.
The Center has a well-established base of collaborative community partners which includes other community-based organizations that provide a broad source of resources. We promote, foster, and contribute to the healthy development and growth of our youth and their families through education, support and advocacy; constantly adapting to the changing needs of adolescents and families within our community.
Focusing on parenting issues and family wellness, The Center is committed to working with parents and local community organizations to help teach parents practical skills, discover networking opportunities, and participate in educational workshops. Our ultimate goal is to provide strength-based techniques so parents are equipped with the tools to strengthen their abilities to mitigate family conflict and comfortably raise their children.
In addition to the previously mentioned items, The Center will help teach strategies and techniques for handling common problems like miscommunication, handling of schoolwork, household chores, peer relationships and family relationships. The types of skills that prove useful are clear communication, setting limits, defining responsibilities, enforcing consequences, negotiating, collaborative problem solving and managing anger.
To put the information and strategies learned into practice, parents need encouragement. A parent’s confidence may be shaken if their child becomes argumentative and uncooperative; parents may even feel embarrassed by their child's rebellious behavior. When parents feel inadequate, their authority is undermined and problem solving becomes less effective. You are not alone.
