Prevention Links understands the essential role of the family in building resiliency and an intrinsic desire to achieve in our young people as well as serving as the cornerstone for a healthy community. The Family Success Division is rooted in our Family Success Centers and offers multiple family strengthening programs and opportunities.
– Family Success Centers (FSC) are neighborhood gathering places where any community resident can go for support, information and services. FSC’s may be in different settings such as: storefronts, houses, schools, houses of worship, offices buildings, housing projects, etc.
– The FSC approach is collaborative; local residents serve as mentors and decision-makers; families use strengths/skills to problem solve.
– FSCs include community involvement and shared responsibility. Residents influence development and implementation and participate in governance.
– The design and delivery of FSCs affirm and strengthen cultural identity and diversity; staff of the FSC represents the culture, ethnicity, and makeup of the community.
