Empowerment-Based Family Support
Our work is based on the belief that all people, and all families, have strengths. This is a core principle of an empowerment-based family support model currently being taught by the Connecticut Family Development Institute to help families achieve healthy self-reliance and interdependence with their communities. We helps each family to assess their needs and strengths and works in partnership with families to help them set and reach goals, learn and practice skills and feel better prepared to meet future challenges.

Learning to advocate saved me and my family .
Luz is a 32 year old South American mother of two children, who came to the United States three years ago to join her children’s father.
This class helped me with so much.
This class has given me the motivation to move forward and that violence comes in a lot of ways, breaking, yelling and more.
Being willing to trust helped me to learn.
I would say that I got a lot from this...the groups help with self-respect and goals in life!

Just a little can go a long way.
