The Nurturing Program is a free program (10 weeks) for families to take together. Parents meet separately from children with two trained facilitators while youth participate in self-esteem building activities with their own facilitator. The program is for any family that wants to get along better, communicate more and feel closer to each other. The program works for all kinds of families: two-parent, single-parent, foster, adoptive and blended families.

This program is designed to help adults and children learn how to handle their feelings, communicate their needs and feelings of others, and take charge of their own behavior; replace hitting and yelling as disciplinary techniques with other, more effective techniques such as redirection, time-out, choices and consequences, praise, family rule, problem solving, etc. Help to handle stress & anger. Feel good about themselves.
