Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support

Certification Training

How can we work with families most effectively?

What does it mean to be a quality Family Strengthening and Support Program?

How can managers, direct service staff, and families work together to develop and sustain quality programs?

The nationally-adopted Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support are used by public departments, foundations, networks, community-based organizations, and parents used as a tool for planning, providing, and assessing quality practice.

Based on the Principles of Family Support Practice and the Strengthening Families Framework and its research-based evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, they have created a common language across different kinds of Family Strengthening and Family Support programs such as Family Resource Centers, home visiting programs, and child development programs.

This full-day certification training details how the Standards can enhance work with families.Whether you are setting up a new program or strengthening an existing one, the Standards provide a blueprint for implementing best practice.

Participants from Programs are highly encouraged to come as teams with Executive Directors, Managers, Coordinators, and Direct Service Staff, as each has a key role to play in implementing the Standards effectively.Participants who complete the full session will receive a certificate from the National Family Support Network that is valid for two years.
