Family Economic Success Trainings    CERTIFICATE AVAILABLE



Family Economic Success (FES) is the ability of families to secure the financial resources to meet their needs and achieve their goals for themselves and for their children within one or two generations. The unique perspective of the Family Support field is that Family Economic Success should be promoted with a two-generation strategy that includes both parents and their children.

This series of workshops support staff working with families to promote Family Economic Success by connecting families to a range of economic benefits and resources including Childcare, Food Stamps, Tax Credits, Individual Development Accounts, Housing assistance, and Health benefits.

FS Standards Application Trainings    CERTIFICATE AVAILABLE



Whether you are setting up a new program or strengthening an existing one, the Family Support Standards provide a blueprint for implementing best practice. Meeting the Minimum Quality indicators will create a Family Support program with a solid base. Programs are encouraged to strive to meet the High Quality indicators in order to serve families most effectively.

The Standards are designed to be implemented within a reasonable scope of resources of a Family Support program, which may include leveraged resources from other providers. Successful application of the Standards requires commitment and training of all levels of Program responsibility – Executive Directors, Managers, Coordinators, Direct Service Staff, and Families. Each has a key role to play.
