Strong Families from the Start
Approach - Strong Families from the Start!
ABC Cayuga brings people together to make Cayuga County the best possible place to be a child. To guide us in our work, we have adopted an approach known as Strengthening Families.
Developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy, the framework has a proven record of benefiting families from all socio-economic backgrounds by helping families build on strengths and buffer risks, making them more resilient to the challenges all families face.
An example of the projects we support are the Auburn Community Cafes, and their “conversations that matter,” which bring parents together to discuss the joys and challenges of raising children in Cayuga County.
Visit our “Get Strong” section to learn more about the Strengthening Families approach and how we work to connect parents to each other and to key community resources.
