Strengthening Families Outreach Program

The Strengthening Families Outreach Program services English and Spanish speaking families that need more parenting techniques and support. SFOP is a strengthening based program that focuses on and encourages the attachment between caregivers and infant toddlers. This program is oriented for those families that need more intensive in-home parenting education and support.

The SFO Program has been implemented in Summit County since 2000, and it has a proven track record of success in improving parenting skills that lead to the reduction of child abuse and neglect. This program serves children ages 0 to18 as well as pregnant women.
